A celebration of trees in virtual space
by Juanita Deharo
About the Book
The book Documents 'Virtual Treeline' which invited artists to participate in an environmental art project in the virtual reality world, Second Life.

The book's essay documents the artists' responses to trees as an inspiration for their art works and as a catalyst for thinking about sustainability and environment.
Features & Details
Juanita is the avatar of Australian artist Judy Barrass. Juanita makes art in cyberspace in on-line virtual realities. She is interested in the intersection of the real and the virtual, how one can compliment and augment the other. As an artist she moves freely across the boundaries, creating works and tools that fit the purpose, and finding her audience in both realms.
