Second Livestock

Media performancex

Austin STEWART [United States]


Second Livestock, a virtual reality world for battery-farmed chickens, is a parody of the game Second Life. In this work, the artist gives a presentation and performance as CEO of Second Livestock. With the appearance of chickens in this presentation and on the website, it draws parallels between how we treat animals and how we treat ourselves.
