Alan Hook, Pete Wardle

    Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

    Abstract

    A collaborative Interactive Second Life Installation with Alan Hook, the piece was a prize winner in the San Jose Tech Museum of Innovation and was exhibited from 3 July 2008.The “Connecting Point” installation features a first life/second life live camera feed system that links a first life physical space to a second life location through two screens, one in second life and one in first life. The live camera feeds are set up to link the participants to complete goals and play games in and across the two areas using a specially created HUD.The piece evoked the feeling not only of controlling or mimicking an avatar, but of a human exerting control over another human via the avatar.
