<p>Editor's note</p><p>Andrew Burrell, one of Australia's leading <it>Second Life</it> artists, has been developing experimental text and sound for virtual spaces for several years. Nonnatus Korhonen is his avatar (see <url>http://palace-of-memory.com</url>). In this article, Burrell discusses his recent mixed-reality installation that works between <it>Second Life</it>'s virtual space and a gallery's real-world space. The central concern of the work is self-replicating objects and systems. Burrell describes the ideas behind the work and how he realized it, explaining the difficulties in finding ways to make possible interactive audience engagement between the two spaces.</p><p align="right">—<it>Maria Miranda</it></p>
