Second Night, Nuit Blanche de Paris on Second Life

On Saturday Oct. 6 2007, internet users worldwide will be able to take part in the Nuit Blanche organized by the Paris local council. Second Night will be displayed both on Second Life and in the Jean Musy room at Hôtel d’Albret, 31 rue des Francs-Bourgeois (Paris, 4th district).

Avatars and Parisians are invited to wander through the virtual or physical location of their choice to discover the work of around ten international artists. Architecture, politics, the place of the individual in society, security, prostitution: the works displayed raise questions regarding the various aspects of Second Life, which is a penetrable mirror of the real world.

Based on a proposal by Daniele Balit and Christophe Bruno.
