About SisterButta

SisterButta
SisterButta

A professional writer, SisterButta, also known as Trolley Trollop, sees Second Life as a means to explore narrative techniques and means to create new “story-making” possibilities to create interactive and immersive environments to convey information in non-traditional ways.

A life-long denizen of on-line communities dating back to early 1980s, SisterButta is a noted performer and voice artist is Second Life, and has been active in the promotion of arts through the likes of Seanchai Library and the Decades festival, which focuses on historical role-play in Second Life. She has also, with building partner Robijn Resident, created an installation covering the first 200 years of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), which was displayed at Rocca Sorrentina.

More recently, SisterButta and Robijn created Wound Angels, an interactive exhibit honouring breast cancer sufferers through the ages, as seen through the eyes of some of history’s greatest artists, and which was first shown at the RFL 2016 Home and Garden exhibition.

Sorties and Poems

In Perfect Rotation – Caledonia Skytower

Inspired by The Crane Bowl at Wounded Angels

The Crane Bowl at Wounded Angels by SisterButta – Art at the Park,May 2016

They are always there
balanced, delicate, precise
celebration here.

Crowning life in red
bright heat at full attention
the crucible now.

Courage to face it
brave flare of golden yellow
fear and fortitude

Always lingering
below and about them all
mystery and death

Black and white affirm
the hues of our existence
with its brutal truth

Always they revolve
ever balanced, and precise
perfect rotation.

Wounded Angel – Kayden Oconnell

Inspired by the Wounded Angel installation

Carry her soft, my lads.
Give her the care that she needs.
Bandage her wings, my lads.
Speak not with words, but with deeds.

War beat her down, my lads.
Even an angel can bleed.
Forget the past, my lads.
Look straight ahead, and take heed.

Look at her hand, my lads.
See how she carries some green.
This is the colour of life, my lads.
It will heal all that she’s seen.

Carry her soft, my lads.
Sing her to all that you find.
You are her eyes, my lads.
Justice, though blind, can be kind.
