The Computation Studio running in FBE this session centred around Second Life and had students armed with land creating places with both geometry and scripts. I got to see three of the presentations yesterday and there were some really interesting investigations and undertaking from these second year Architectural Computing students. There is alot more thinking to be done about what it means to BE in a virtual space, the relationship between the reference physical cues and the purely virtual.
I am downloading the SL client now and will post a few screenshots of their work and other things I run into as I re-look at this fascinating place. To get a feel for the place – check out the Second Life Showcase site.
Here I am after the install and a bit of design work on the clothes etc. I am hovering outside one of the submissions which was a very natural place.
