This video was shown at the Essex ICT conference I attended last week. I think it’s a very powerful example of how modern technology can give you a different perspective on things. What better way to understand a piece of artwork than to jump right into it.

It’s called Watch The World by an artist who’s Second Life name is Robbie Dingo. In it he shows how he recreated Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” within Second Life.

Sadly, the work no longer exists in Second Life, it was created purely to make this video machinima.
