This video is part of my Master's thesis project, "Waiting before the chat room door". It is a speculation and an interactive installation revolving around chat rooms and their teenage users in the late Nineties and early Two-thousands. It aims at showing that such things as digital places existed (and still exist), and that the divide between physical and digital places is sometimes a matter of intensity, not quality.
This is part 2 of 4 in my presentation videos set.
