Abstract

An interactive online performance based on Jorge Luis Borges' Library of Babel and presented within the virtual environment of Second Life. Part performance and part virtual building project, BABBLE tasks its avatar audience with climbing to the top of the Library of Babel – a tower full of words in Second Life. The journey, led by avatar performers through the library, involves encounters with impossible stories re-imagined for the virtual world.
