Inspired by Slavoj Zizek’s semiotic account of John Carpenters 1988 sci-fi classic ‘They Live’ this installation, produced for the Futuresonic Festival 2008 in Manchester, combines a Second Life exhibition at the SYLGRUT Centre, where avatars meet first life festival visitors at MoHo Live for the opening Futuresonic Arts event. Through a live telepresent video link between first and Second Life these audiences listened and danced together to the sounds of The RZA as Bobby Digital.
