SIGGRAPH Asia Archive in Second Life (Completed)

SIGGRAPH Asia Archive in Second Life Project was completed now.



This is an art project that collects photographs concerning past "ACM SIGGRAPH Emerging Technlogy" and makes an 3-D image archive in Second Life, aiming at this year's SIGGRAPH ASIA 2008. 600 photographs or more were finally collected.

It is created by Hidenori Watanave (Supervisor of Photon,Inc. / Associate Professor of Tokyo Metropolitan University), and conception by Tomoe Moriyama (SIGGRAPH ASIA Art Gallery and Emerging Technology chair / Museum of Comtemporary art Tokyo). Please refer to the lower side of this article about cooperators.

It will be exhibited in SIGGRAPH Asia Art Gallery (Singapore, Dec.10 - 13 2008). I will make a machinima (movie) of this project and upload soon.
