The virtual body is a metaphorical body and therefore a body of expression and language.
We focused on this aspect, on project Meta_Body, thinking of the avatar as a body / language open to experimentation and possibility, providing eighteen avatars, which were not only offered, but were also copiable and transferable, giving total freedom of use to produsers.
Meta_Body II was the second phase of this project. Having the Meta_Body project avatars as a starting point, SL residents were invited to share their derivative avatars, using any of the parts of the Meta_Body project avatars, parts built by the users and/or parts built by other developers, since their specified license allowed redistribution with full permissions. All avatars had to be provided with full permissions, meaning that they had to be copyable, shareable and open for transformation.
