Invisible Threads–A Virtual Sweatshop in Second Life explores the growing intersection between labor, emerging virtual economies and real life commodities through the creation of a jeans sweatshop in Second Life. Simulating a real life manufacturing facility that includes hiring Second Life "workers" to produce real world jeans sold for profit, the project provides an insider's view into current modes of global, telematic production.
Debuted at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival
