Title: CultureWork ; Special Topic Issue : 2007 : [3] : Second Life : Virtual DIY (Do-it-yourself)
Author: Voelker-Morris, Julie L.; Voelker-Morris, Robert J., 1969-
Abstract: The third piece in our ongoing special topic series on DIY (Do-it-yourself) arts and culture moves into the world of online virtual worlds. Under consideration are ways in which organizations can utilize virtual spaces as locations for low-overhead international outreach. We are highlighting a specific organization, The Heron Sanctuary (THS), using a Second Life (http://secondlife.com/) platform. Of particular interest is that THS works with, and is administered by, people with disabilities (physical, mental, and emotional) using digital arts as forms of personal expression. What follows is an interview with THS co-founder Gentle Heron and artworks and poems by co-founder SuperQuiet Heron.
