On November 30th, the Stanford Humanities Lab in collaboration with artist Lynn Hershman will present work from the ongoing Life to the Second Power (L2) research project. This project will re-animate the existing archive of Lynn Hershman, now housed in the Special Collections Library at Stanford University. Converting the archive into a digital format of hybrid genre will allow users of the content to dynamically revisit the past while simultaneously expanding the audience for this material. Specifically this means building a living archive of Hershman's work inside the 3D online world Second Life.
Lynn Hershman will give a tour of L2's work in Second Life. Her voice will be streamed live via the web. The presentation can be experienced from multiple viewpoints. invited guests can create a free account and logon to Second Life or you can observe in a number of designated public locations. The event will be documented as it happens and later made available online.
