    The Virtual Metropolis

    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2012)

    London, UK, 10 - 12 July 2012

    AUTHORS

    Mike Parsons & Michael Peters

    ABSTRACT

    "The Virtual Metropolis" is an interactive installation combining traditional ink drawings and stop motion animation with video game technology. The artwork features various intermingled imaginary environments including cityscapes, factory districts and war zones. The user is invited to explore these worlds, seamlessly moving from one area to next, to discover satirically iconic animations and imagery. Conceptually the work emphasizes the immediate connections each environment has with the others while using humorous vignettes to express discontent towards a virtual world not too dissimilar from our own.
