Immersion Maze: Avatar Embodiment Versus the Pervasive Social Stream

This video is about the interplay between immersion in a world (virtual or physical) and the pervasive  presence of the social network. I used a visit to the Art Maze exhibition in Second Life as the underlying visual anchor. There are a number of dimensions I tried to illuminate:
  • Embodied Immersion in Second Life (Art Maze) 
  • Psychological Immersion in the Social Network (profile pic room)
  • Physical presence viewing the computer screen (implied via video shot with iPhone)
Please play at high volume.
Music is by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, My Heart, My Life (Remix) from Star Rise CD.
