Max Moswitzer - Metaverse Inside [Boxed_v0.02] 2010 | Installation
Electronic avatars first arise in the most primitive form as moving cursor on the grid screen, when that screen becomes networked with other screens. The cursor on the user's screen opens a mouse hole into the unified power grid. Through the moving cursor we see the mind of a human subject revealed, who navigates information. The seed of this avatar is the potential of cyberspace, to mix information, intersubjectivity and real-time communication.
