Gracie Kendal 1000 Avatar Project as the Antithesis of Avatar Photo Narcissism
As Daniel Voyager reported earlier today, Gracie Kendal's 1000 Avatar Project reached its goal of capturing the images of 1000 Second Life avatars. Although Gracie has her own reasons for embarking upon this project, I see it as the antidote for the type of virtual identity narcissism that's reflected in many avatar photostreams on Flickr. There are quite a few individuals whose photostreams are populated almost entirely of hundreds of images of themselves. What's up with that?
