This is a machinema project I did for a new media art class at UCSD. It's more of a montage than a machinema, but I think it turned out well. (Of course I do.)
I poke fun at elements of Second Life that I find simultaneously funny and troublesome. Having been exposed to the game through this project, I am fascinated by this virtual sandbox we have created, where anything goes. I am further amazed (and disturbed) that real money, to the tune of a million dollars a day, is spent in this game.
Here's for after you've watched it: No, I'm not ripping on John Edwards. I'm questioning the idea of having a virtual campaign headquarters. He just happened to be the only candidate who has one.
Make sure your volume is turned up, as I was a little too successful in making sure it wasn't too loud.
(And yes, the use of the song "Kernkraft 400", by Zombie Nation *hint*, was deliberate.)
