MU College of Avatar Architecture & Virtual Urban Planning
CAA-VUP (pronounced “Cave-up”) opened today! It’s a 3 month, 91 day, residency (1 April 30 June) at LEA1.
Izzy wrote a nice post describing the College, our goals, and how things will work:
A few people started installing at LEA1 today. Then Emma put in a radio tower and the whole thing turned into a dance party — imagine that! Oh, a 100-meter-up dance party, since it didn’t take long for us to find ourselves dancing on top of the radio tower.
A lot happened for Day One!
One day down… 90 more to go.
I’m excited to see what unfolds in the coming days.
- Avatar Architecture – let’s explore what architecture can be free of the constraints, traditions, and baggage of RL.
- Virtual Urban Planning – avatars can simply live by teleporting from place to place. Like driving a car. But with less lag. But just as Jane Jacobs worried that cars cut across neighborhoods and communities, so I worry about teleporting limiting the development of neighborhoods. Lets see if we an create true VR Urban Spaces of interaction and community.
See you tomorrow!
