Last year, during Laval Virtual 2009, i saw the Archidemo’s guys. These researchers use Second Life to show archives.
In this archive, users can browse images and webpages of Japanese winners of Prix Ars Electronica 1987 to 2007. And also, this archive support Livecam function (the scene of exhibition will be projected) and twitter search widget. I’m constructing new function contributing the chatlog in Second Life to twitter now.
« Ars Electronica Archive in Second Life » was produced for exhibition in « Technoclasm Cyber Arts Japan / Ars Electronica 30 years for Art and Media Technology » at Museum of Contemporary art Tokyo and The 13th Japan Media Arts Festival.
