Avatar Machine, 2008

The virtual communities created by online games have provided us with a new medium for social interaction and communication. Avatar Machine is a system which replicates the aesthetics and visuals of third person gaming, allowing the user to view her/ himself as a virtual character in real space via a head mounted interface. The system potentially allows for a diminished sense of social responsibility, and could lead to demonstrate behaviours normally reserved for the gaming environment.
