I'm writing a paper on identity within virtual worlds, with a particular interest in Second Life, and avatars, as well as artworks commenting on or addressing these issues. If anyone can be bothered, I'd love to hear your views on any of these issues:

Do you find it strange that in a virtual world, where almost anything is possible, people still often conform to stereotypes of beauty, and create objects, houses etc that are very firmly based in the reality of the real world, or fiction. Or do you disagree with this, believing that Second Lifers have adopted the liberatory possibilities of virtuality?

Are your avatars anything like your 'real life' self? Is your character based on yourself, or who you want to be, or something other than this? Have you gender or species swapped? What do you think identity swapping achieves, is good for, is bad for etc? If you have gender swapped, do you think your avatar's treatment is different from your original gender? How do you feel about 'identity tourism' in general? Some would say that virtual characters allow you to escape from the 'shackles of reality', do you agree with this?

Also, if you have anything general to say, please feel free! Or if you know of any artists using themes like this in their work, hooking me up would be so so appreciated!

Hope this isn't too boring!
