Artist Demo: Second Livestock

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join us for an artist demo featuring Austin Stewart's Second Livestock. Second Livestock is a virtual reality world for battery-farmed chickens.  By performing a straight-faced parody of virtual reality platform Second Life, the project attracts non-traditional art audiences to a conversation about the consequences of people choosing to spend more of their lives in virtual spaces, and questions the differences between how we treat animals and how we treat ourselves.
