Jay Walker: Avatar / IRL

If you attended Miami Art Week, you might have seen Jay Walker‘s Avatar / IRL as part of BaseCamp in Magic City Innovation District, which is in Little Haiti.  

Avatar / IRL is an exterior installation consisting of eight 96” x 96” paper-cut, internally lit stencils.

Walker was inspired to create this installation by Oscar Wilde’s thought: “Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.”Avatar / IRL is an attempt to unpack the relationship between anonymity and honesty, to consider what is in our hearts vs. what is behind our masks. 

If you are in the Miami area in early December, the viewing of Avatar / IRL is free and open to the public at 300-310 NE 61st St, Miami, FL 33137. It is best seen after sunset.
