Second Life Island, wind-chime, motor, fans, custom electronics and software.
Can natural elements from a virtual reality take solid form and exist in our physical reality? Can virtual particles affect real world molecules?
This project is a mixed reality installation in which the wind of Second Life is used to move a wind chime in real physical space. The virtual wind’s direction and speed are the variables that determine the device’s functionality in real time. This work creates a parallel between these two realities (virtual and physical), showing how they relate and interact with each other, creating a portal from one world to the other.
