This short video (by Second Life’s prolific and talented ‘Bernhard Drax,’) takes you inside the virtual Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp in Second Life. The project resulted from a partnership between Seton Hall School of Law, the MacArthur Foundation, the Bay Area Video Coalition, documentary producer/director Nonny de la Peña, and Peggy Weil, professor of interactive media at USC.
The installation is one most innovative uses of virtual worlds for political and social commentary that I have seen so far, and the video does a good job capturing the experience.
