Alain Della Negra et Kaori Kinoshita - "Furries" (2007)

Born respectively in Tokyo in 1970 and in Versailles in 1975, live and work together in Paris.
Second Life offers those who wish to live in this virtual world the opportunity to create, manage and develop their own alternative reality. With all these options, and a constantly increasing population, Second Life has political ramifications. Who decides which rules should be applied in this virtual world? Which laws and measures should be enacted? Where is the border between virtual and real, how is it transformed? Here, Alain Della Negra and Kaori Kinoshita present two videos: “Furries”, specially designed for the Second Night physical space, devoted to owners of avatars with hybrid appearance, half-human, half-animal, and “Newborns”, in the virtual space where two “residents” talk about their virtual existence. The videos are at the porous interstice between the real and virtual worlds.
