Gazira Babeli

Gazira Babeli

Gazira Babeli is a Second Life phenomenon. She has been living and working as an artist, performer and film-maker in Second Life since 2006 and her non-authorised performances and interruptions have captured the attention of art critics and artists alike. Her black top hat with its suggestive wobble, skin tight dress and dark glasses have become iconic in-world and are integrated like a virus into many of her performances that challenge the 'illusions' of Second Life whilst disrupting its very fabric. The artist behind the avatar has deliberately dissociated her real life identity from that of Gazira, preferring instead to let Gaz's actions speak for themselves.
