TheFunkySeniorHome: A fake senior home set in the virtual world of Second Life
Participants are invited to project themselves 50 years later. Only those avatars ready to replace their fabulous SecondLife appearance by a skin that makes them look 50 years older can become members of TheFunkySeniorHome. #joinmein50years is an urgent call to reflect on what it means to be old and to age in today's western society. The project responds to the need for more innovative structures for the Elderly people which do not only focus on nursing and care but also on intellectual needs and personal growth.
The 50 min film is a find of summery of the 1st edition of sessions and a kind of teaser trailer for the fake senior home set in the virtual world of second Life.
