These were the graphics I used for my presentation on Virtual Subjectivity at the Boston Is Watching event about Second Life art at the Boston CyberArts Festival. Clicking on slides 4, 6, 7, 11, 13 will take you to video on the web). If you click the last slide, you can see the "trailer" for the screwball comedy about SL relationships that I've been working on, which was not part of the presentation yesterday.
The gist is this: people are the important part of a virtual world--they make the art, they make the world, and a project like Brooklyn Is Watching is a nexus for like-minded folks to find each other, collaborate, and create virtual subjectivity, which is ultimately something we do together. William Gibson called cyberspace a "consensual hallucination" (in 1984 in Neuromancer) and that holds up as a great definition.
