This week on Tonight Live With Paisley Beebe, not only do we feature the HBO Director and one of the subjects of the Documentary "When Strangers Click" See prev Blog post announcement, we have Gracie Kendel creator of the 1000 Avatar Project, and our Resident Spotlight this week Enoch Mildor from the True Blood Royal Ballroom Club.

Gracie KendalGracie KendalGracie Kendal has been on Tonight Live previously to talk about her Art in real life, (Watch HERE)  and how she brought it over to Second Life. Since our last interview Gracie has been working inworld on 2 other projects, her My Life As An Avatar Project, and lately on her 1000 Avatar Project.

KRISTINE SCHOMAKER: also know as Gracie Kendal, is a Los Angeles based new media and performance artist, painter and art historian. She received her BA in Art History and her MA in Studio Art from California State University at Northridge. For over 12 years, she has been experimenting with various interdisciplinary art forms including using online virtual worlds and social networking technologies to connect with international audiences and local arts communities. Kristine's current work explores notions of online identity, specifically the construction of Avatars. Her work as a whole stands as an allegory of the relationship between appearance and identity, illusion, belief and reality. Two projects she is presently working on include, "My Life as an Avatar: The Gracie Kendal project" and "1000 Avatars" a contemporary anthropology of portraits of avatars in the virtual world of Second Life. Gracie has also written a thesis on online identity

Gracie has been inundated with Avatars wanting their photo included in this project, so much so that after initially going for 100 Avatars she has now decided to go over the 1000 Avatars...what has she learned about Avatars and herself during this process? what can we learn, what surprised her? and what delighted her. Are you part of this project? come along and be filmed in our audience.

On February 14th 2011, HBO will air a documentary film called “When Strangers Click” directed by Academy Award Nominee Robert Kenner (whose past work includes “Food, Inc.“). The film is about people who have met people they love online, and one segment features a wonderful story from Second Life: a Swedish musician who performs inworld and not only secured a record deal through a connection made in Second Life, but also met a woman (in the US), whom he fell in love with – now the two have a son together.
Tonight Live With Paisley Beebe was honored to be asked to help promote this film to our viewers. On next weeks show I will be interviewing the director Robert Kenner and one of the people featured in the film Second Life Musician Bara Jonson. (Watch Robert Kenner HERE being interviewed by Jon Stewart on the Daily Show about his Award Winning film Food Inc.)
