Abstract

E-Merging Realities is a project undertaken to utilize technology to display art and raise social awareness. An artistic design was built within the game Second Life that shows images designed to increase the users awareness of issues such as third world hunger. A special wheelchair controller was designed and a prototype built that is used to navigate through the piece. Ultimately we ended with a complete piece that uses interactive technology to address real human issues.
