Friday, February 15th, 2008

South Hall 2509

1:00 – 2:30 pm

“How much feelings have an Avatar? Where is the intersection between Real- and Virtual-Life?  And is it possible to spread out a Virus who is reacting to the personal behaviours of Avatars in Second Life?

These questions are the starting point of the media art project by Michael Mastrototaro (aka MACHFELD)http://www.machfeld.net

 The bright light of the digital culture burns with a vision of being in communities…and the user is not alone any more in this virtual hyperspace.  All this very hype Online-Communities like Second Life, MySpace and so on gives us an overview that togetherness helps us to define our daily needs and to find out what we really want in both lives.

 But what’s happening if someone installs real life behaviours like illness in these very frequented online worlds?”

 This event is part of the UCSB English Department’s Second Life Project.
