[Yasmin_discussions] Virtual Reality and Art: Questioning Simulation and Mimicry

Dear Yasminers,

Approaching this simulation topic (or any other) from writing (as in most of the contributions to this discussion list) determines the ideas, the thoughts: i.e.: we produce words about simulation.

In order to compensate this bias let me invite you to an "old" (1997) online Virtual Reality experience which took contemporary art as a stand point in order to pose questions about Simulation and mimicry as the dominant strategies of the time
