We Are Not Alone – Part 2

Having achieved presence, the research systematically proceeded through the study of identity, following two directions: on one side the inversion of the strategy designed for 'Talker' and 'Talker Performance' and, on the other side, the creation of a totally virtual identity. Ex-novo. 'Dead on SecondLife' inverts the process created for 'Talker Performance'. The direction changes: body shifts towards virtual.... READ MORE...

(Italiano) The Super Avatars

(Italiano) L'idea del SuperAvatar nasce nel 2007.

Among the many models one of the most popular - probably because it manages to approach the different kinds of sensitiveness among the audience - is what I call the Darwinian Composer....

Polymorphic Intelligence: Part 2

As far as we know, the human being is the most 'intelligent' organism. Their brain includes a number of fuctions so complex and sophisticated that, when the neurologist and psychologist Howard Gardner in his Frames of Mind tries to recap its structure, he comes up with seven sub-structures: Linguistic Intelligence, Logic-Mathematical Intelligence, Musical Intelligence, Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence, Spatial Intelligence, Interpersonal Intelligence and Intrapersonal Intelligence....
