link that the post of Cristina Miranda remembers me:*
*H2O is a work of the French group Electronic Shadow inspired by the novel
'The Invention of Morel'. The link I'm sending concerns to the first issue
of the Newsletter 'Virus_01' **http://www.nomads.usp.br/virus/virus01/**,
published by my old research group, when I was doing my Master in
Architecture in Brazil. I published in this in this issue a text on
subject-object transactions in mixed realities, but it is only available in
the printed version of the newsletter. Hope you enjoy and thanks for the
amazing and inspiring ideas on simulation and beyond,*
