I have been thinking a lot lately about reality creation, and the various expressers (artists, writers, scientists, creators of all kinds) who work with that big idea. Cao Fei's conclusion to her starting question about avatar interaction is that the created reality (in this case the virtual reality of 2nd life) ultimately presents the same problems as our reality does. I am interested in finding realities that ultimately free us from our perceived limitations, thus allowing our reality to expand into places we currently consider 'impossible.'
Please comment and share any links or examples of reality creators you admire.. more from me coming soon!
Please also check out the site for the PBS program Art:21 there is so much great stuff on there, including videos of entire episodes. You can also stream episodes from older seasons on Netflix.
