LaTurbo Avedon is an avatar and artist originating in virtual spaces including video games, chat rooms, and life on the Internet. Their work emphasizes the practice of nonphysical identity and authorship. Avedon uses game engines and modeling software to generate poetic viewing simulations, often a commentary on the experience of looking at digital art itself. In Frontier Study, Avedon shares a simulation of landscape and nature, creating a view beyond Eadweard Muybridge’s 1886 photographic project Horse in Motion. Rendering a digital horse into life, the work provides a phenomenological examination of the simulation of nature by calling attention to the visual logic by which computers evoke an alternate virtual reality.
