Gazira Babeli

Gazira Babeli is a code performer.

Gazira Babeli (Gaz) was born in Second Life on 31st March 2006. Second Life is a 3-D virtual world entirely built by its residents and owned by the company Linden Lab.

Gazira caused a stir with her code performance grey goo, when Second Life was overwhelmed by a flood of self-replicating objects, melting down the Linden Servers. Grey goo is shorthand for an apocalytic nano-gone-wrong scenario wherein nanoassemblers replicate so profligately that they reduce the world to slurry.

Other works of Gazira Babeli include Come To Heaven, DONTsay..., niceQUAKE, Singing Pizza, Second Soup, Performative Guns and ULTIMATE SUBMISSION. Her work was covered in Slatenight magazine, The AvaStar, Second Life Insider, We make money not art, La Stampa and El Pais.

Gazira is also a member of the Second Life performance group Second Front, which might be the first example of Second Life as the embodiment of a "native" artistic proposal.
