Transcript of "Context presentation for my ITP thesis"

  1. 1. Thesis Contexts Adam Simon Feb 6, 2008
  2. 2. Exterior Contexts
  3. 3. SFZero
  4. 4. SFZero: An interface for San Francisco. That is to say, a new representation for the data that's already there. Your mind is full of /inaccurate/ representations that are affecting the way you use the San Francisco dataflow. Your character looks exactly the same as you. Your character will have all the same skills and attributes as you, and even the same memories and feelings... most importantly, your character is able to do things that you may be unable or unwilling to do yourself. Your character doesn't recognize the artificial boundaries that prevent non-players from doing what they want to do. Things like fear, lethargy and the police don't deter your character from achieving his or her goals. Any material displayed as part of the Game should be considered fictive until and unless proven otherwise.
