CyberForum@ArtCenter Archives: 2000-2001
The CyberForum@ArtCenter presented real-time online author / artist chats in 3D avatar worlds.
The Spring 2000 series featured authors drawn from The Digital Dialectic: New Essays on New Media (MIT Press, 1999) collected and edited by Peter Lunenfeld.

The Summer 2000 series brought authors and panelists together to discuss “The Avatar and the Global Brain.”
The Spring / Summer 2001 series began with artists Miltos Manetas, Andreas Angelidakis, and Francois Perrin in their World++ in the ActiveWorlds universe. Next was a chat about the VR theory of Thomas B. Sheridan, editor of the MIT journal PRESENCE. The world built around Sheridan’s flow chart was built by Matthew Sloly, a graduate student at Art Center. The modem connection at Sheridan’s home was flakey, as the log will show.
The CyberForum@ArtCenter is a production of the Virtual Worlds Team at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, under the direction of Michael Heim.
