Alain Della Negra and Kaori Kinoshita are artists, working on virtual worlds. They present their last documentary about Second Life univers and users. For those who wish to live in this virtual world, Second Life offers the chance to create, manage and develop their own alternate reality. With these kinds of possibilities, and a population that is in constant growth, Second Life has political ramifications. Who decides the rules applied in this virtual world? What laws, what measures need to be defined? Where is the frontier between the virtual and the real, and how is it transmuted? This documentary aims to elucidate the porous nature between real and virtual worlds.
The Upgrade! Paris sessions are organized by Incident.net. They are public and monthly. Artists, researchers, architects, theorists present during one hour their recent work. Partners: RYBN, CITU, Ars Longa, Upgrade! International.
