Printmaker & Digital Artist

Printmaker

This is the most recent extension of my practice.

I am particularly interested in turning images of my virtual world video work into paper and ink, a returning of the digital to the tangible and tactile. Each stage adds a new layer of artifacts that combine into unique and often unusual appearances.

Digital Artist

I have been making work in Second Life since 2009, working under the pseudonym of Tizzy Canucci.

My main artform as a digital artist has been video, which are often called machinima in games worlds. All my videos can be seen at Tizzy Canucci on Vimeo.

My work has shown in many online spaces. Most notably, my work has been selected for showing at Supernova Digital Animation Festival in Denver three years running now. This is my latest.

My video work reflects my fascination in the interplay of creativity in Second Life. I am particularly interested in how people use space as a social and creative environment. This reflects my background as a sociologist, modelmaker and photographer.

The interview below, from Women Cinemakers covers my background in photography, writing and modelmaking, and how I moved into video work and making machinima. (Direct link).

I write a blog on virtual worlds on another website of mine: Tizzy Canucci. I’m also on twitter and flickr under the name Tizzy Canucci.
