Exodus to the Virtual World

exodus.jpgExodus to the Virtual World: How Online Fun Is Changing Reality by Edward Castronova -Virtual worlds have exploded out of online game culture and now capture the attention of millions of ordinary people: husbands, wives, fathers, mothers, workers, retirees. Devoting dozens of hours each week to massively multiplayer virtual reality environments (like World of Warcraft and Second Life), these millions are the start of an exodus into the refuge of fantasy, where they experience life under a new social, political, and economic order built around fun. Given the choice between a fantasy world and the real world, how many of us would choose reality? Exodus to the Virtual World explains the growing migration into virtual reality, and how it will change the way we live–both in fantasy worlds and in the real one.

Dave Bullock: HDR Photography – Today’s digital cameras have a limited dynamic range compared to film. If you shoot a photo of a landscape with a beautiful cloudy sky, your landscape will be properly exposed, but your clouds will be washed out or vice-versa. High-Dynamic Range photography allows you to circumvent your sensor’s limitations by taking multiple photos with different exposures and combining them on your computer. Continue reading

“Terms and Conditions” by Burak Arikan

terms-conditions-08.jpgTerms & Conditions by Burak Arikan – Terms & Conditions are often written for legal regulations but they are never read by consumers, as a result consumers are often exploited by agreeing on these unreadable terms. In this piece, terms & conditions of five social web services are re-written using a custom typeface. The resulting images are generated by three processes: me typing the words, the program deciding on the size of each letter each time I hit the key, and the instructions for the fonts. With this piece we both recycle unread terms & conditions text and point to the moment where people give away their rights to the capital.

Terms & Conditions was recently exhibited at the Tobacco Warehouse during the Amber Festival in Istanbul. If you want to try it, here is the first version of the program written in 2005.
