Michael Wright: 2007-08 Faculty Development Grant Report

I received a Faculty Development grant in 2007 to purchase a 16-acre Island in Linden Labs virtual world Second Life to create a presence and further develop my approaches for art making & art education in a virtual world environment. Up to that point I had spent a year in the Second Life developing the tools and knowledge needed to create and run a project in a virtual world. This involvement was partly self-funded with further funding from an Otis TLC technology grant. During that year I had participated in several second life art events, had developed galleries in world where work can be exhibited, and had given a presentation in the summer of 2007 called "Art and Art Education in Virtual Worlds" at the SIGGRAPH 07 Conference in San Diego laying out the details to use second life for a student project. I was also a SIGGRAPH 07 residence artist creating work from virtual worlds as my project.
