Pushing Art morphs still photography and moving image into an interactivehybrid experience. Heller creates a feminist trope by presenting her nurturing relationship with her gutsy, yet naïve, virtual avatar, Nar Duell. Pushing Art combines still images and animations of Nar Duell’s adventures online in Second Life. This virtual world is often fueled by networking, sex and violence, bringing in to question whether illusion is preferable to reality.
