Art Box: A Great Immersive Primer for Students

Art Box: Abbey Road
Location: Abbey Road

When I discovered that one could enter a painting for famous photograph, I had to hightail it over to Art Box, in order to get my and Pappy Enoch's New Years' Greetings cards out.

This simulation would be a perfect starting point for teachers who want to show students what interactive art can mean. After my students see Robbie Dingo's Watch the World(s) they want to explore interactive artwork in SL. This easy-to-use exhibit / playspace would teach students several useful skills in SL, notably how to take photographs well and move their cameras.

It might even mean a job for Pappy, cleaning up for Edward Hopper (or at least cleaning out Hopper's cash register).

Art Box: Nighthawks

Teleport on over and have fun hamming it up in dozens of famous works of art.

Thank you, James Au, for featuring this simulation in New World Notes' list of 20 most popular sims of 2009.
