I haven’t been as good as I should have been this week about posting on the blog, so I’m going to attempt to make up for that over this weekend by making a couple of posts. The first thing is an interesting art piece that attempts to simulate “the banality of physical existence.” I think it’s an interesting piece and the author of the work has some cool ideas that he gets into on the site (you can find them after you’ve gone through the simulator once). Also, keep in mind that this was created in 1997. How have things changed since then? And how would someone attempting to make a similar piece go about critiquing the banality of physical existence verses virtual life? Food for thought.
here’s the link.
