Over the past ten years, LaTurbo has created an extensive collection of performative self-portraiture within video games and other virtual environments. In 2019, they passed a proposal to create a mirror as an addition to the Unicode emoji table, and in turn introduced a public social sculpture that can be viewed by any unicode-compatible device as U+1FA9E. SELF-PORTRAIT WITH PARALLEL MIRROR invites viewers into this personal techno mythology, and to contemplate the object held by its avatar creator.

LaTurbo Avedon is an avatar and artist, creating work that emphasizes the practice of non-physical identity and authorship. Avedon has spent the past decade developing a body of work that illuminates the ever-growing intensity between users and virtual experiences, pursuing creative environments that deepen the meaning of memories found in the metaverse. They curate and design Panther Modern, a file-based exhibition space that encourages artists to create site-specific installations for the Internet.

LaTurbo’s process of character creation continues through gaming, performance and exhibitions. Their work has appeared internationally, including TRANSFER Gallery (New York), The Manchester International Festival UK, Transmediale (Berlin), Haus der elektronischen Künste (Basel), HMVK (Dortmund), Barbican Center (London), Galeries Lafayette (Paris), the Manchester International Festival, and The Whitney Museum (New York City).

The full resolution .TIF file (8000px x 10000px), is delivered to the first recipient of this work. It is authorized to be printed once, and will be verified by the artist as a single-edition. The .TIF file may be retained but not used for further reproductions. As the owner of this work, stewardship and protection of this original file is trusted you. Do not lose it, it cannot be replaced.

LaTurbo Avedon retains an artist proof.

SELF-PORTRAIT WITH PARALLEL MIRROR is part of the digital group show THE ARTIST IS ONLINE. Digital Paintings and Sculpture in a virtual world on view at KÖNIG GALERIE in Decentraland (36.100).
