The Freedom Project: Virtual Ability in Second Life from Petlove on Vimeo.
Art curator Taralyn Gravois embarked on a series of interviews with various artiusts involved in UWA's Freedom Project, and this was expertly crafted into a film by Petlove Petshop, and this is their creation! It carries a number of direct interviews and also shows off all the works that were submitted to the event.
The Freedom Project is a 2D/3D Art & Film Event organized jointly by the University of Western Australia, along with members of the Virtual Ability Group, and the Centre for ME/CFS and Other Invisible Illnesses Group in Second created an artwork or a film/machinima or in fact a personal story on the theme of ‘Freedom’, showing how virtual worlds have in some way helped them or those around them.
This event is to thank all the artists, filmmakers, and writers for contributing their works and of themselves, as well as to thank the many individuals, groups and organisations who made this possible, including Eliza Wierwight, who created the poster for this event, David Doyle & Simone Flavelle of DADAA's stARTSPEAK Project, Tom Papas & Screen My Shorts Inc.
