Today for our featured presentation we have Liz Dorland (Chimera Cosmos) and Adriana Sanchez (Adrianne Lexico) who will be discussing the theory and process behind the creation of the "Museum of Virtual Media", a Second Life sim built collaboratively by their University of Washington class in the spring of 2012.
The museum is inspired by "Infinite Reality", a book on virtual worlds technology and education written by Jim Blascovich and Jeremy Bailenson and takes participants through the evolution of media from ancient cave paintings into the future.
