A Fred Forest Creation on Second Life

2008

Experimental Territory Center & Social Laboratory

PROMENADE DES ANGLAIS, NICE, France


Opening on the 28th February of 2008 at 6pm

Christian Depardieu Gallery, Nice and on Second Life

One week before the municipal elections, Fred Forest begins his think take for the future project.

On this occasion, an initial theme will be developed from aesthetic, ethical, philosophical and social angle:  « Sustainable development »

 

CONCEPT

In the the form of a simulated model calling out to our collective imaginations, Fred Forest furthers his Territory of the artistic square meter project:

- First elaborated in a physical space (Anserville, 1977)
http://www.fredforest.org/territories/

- Then converted  into a Network Territory on the Internet (Imagina, 1996)
http://www.webnetmuseum.org/html/fr/expo-retr-fredforest/actions/48_fr.htm#text

- And now moved into a virtual space (Second Life, 2008)
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Conway%203/71/40/27

In order to access this space, you must first be on Second Life by making an Avatar of yourself.


MECHANISM
Political personalities are invited to express and debate their positions on this question in accordance with their electoral agenda (A later press release will provide a record of these positions. Journalists will have to request to have their credentials approved in order to ensure their Avatar is present in real time). Aside from the presentations offered by various political personalities, access of the Experimental Territory Center and Social Laboratory is open to all (see access information below)

Following the elections and over time, the Experimental Territory Center will advance other themes for debate thereby constituting a worldwide technology-assisted brainstorming thanks to the implementation of the capucine.net authentification card.

MORAL AUTHORITY
This reflection will take place under the auspices, authority and wisdom of the philosopher Plato whose cave shadows (in this instance, mathematical objects and entities) will be constantly present in the debating room in order to ensure, irony notwithstanding, that there is no clouding of judgement, clarity or authenticity.

PARTICIPATION
The Internet users visiting the Center will have the possibility to appropriate the Territory’s interactive plots of land, visible on the ground, to pass their own message in the form of a hyperlink concerning the theme of the discussion. This page will be archived in a database. It will fill one of the Territory’s free plots of land. The Internet users are invited to communicate their URL to the following address: territoire@capucine.net. Only messages dealing with the subject at hand will be installed (settled) on one of the available plots of land.

The pink quadrangle at the center of the Territory, based on active plots of land, represents the original historical matrix of Fred Forest's territorial matrix.
