1. Using a simple controller (joystick, 3DConnection...), one gesture moves several avatars on identical paths through a multiplicity of virtual worlds, thus simulating their interoperability. Real-time images projected beyond the screen, fabricating an Image-Space.
    An installation based on the a series of dualities: CONTEXT (physical || virtual), PROCESS (immersive || emergent) and FABRICATION (active || passive). Opening a window between worlds: a physical world and a virtual world (Sizigia Island, Second Life) —for the fabrication of real images from virtual worlds and virtual images from real worlds. This data is aggregated into a dense and intense material composite, a real-time montage projected from the multiplicity of spaces and embedded databases within a synthetic territory (Sizigia Island, Second Life). It is a machine fabricating a dynamic spatial composition from the convergence of image and movement, information and form, meaning and emergence, space and force… It is a device for reading and writing the essential organization of a world (physical and virtual) —its multiplicity of color and form, movement and discontinuity— a dynamic representation capable of revealing these conditions through the fabrication of an Image-Space.

  2. Das Konzept für das Orientation Island der Volksbanken Raiffeisenbanken habe ich im Frühjahr 2008 entwickelt und zusammen mit der Otherland Group und Sofie Burton (vimeo.com/user382864) umgesetzt. Der Lernpfad wurde speziell für Menschen gestaltet, die Second Life zum ersten Mal und für geschäftliche Zwecke benutzen. Ich bin insbesondere auf unterschiedliche Lerntypen eingegangen und habe viel Interaktion und visuelle Information eingesetzt.

    I developed the concept for the learning path in this video for a German bank earlier in 2008. It's aimed at people who use Second LIfe for the first time in a business context.
