The Three Gorges of the Future

Artist:  Zhu Handong [China]
Photographer: Liao Hongbo [China]
Second Life Technician: Zhao Ken [China]
Project Assistant: Zhang Han [China]
Topic: Energy
Location: Three Gorges, China

This project is a combination of Internet, images and interactive devices between the virtual world and the world. The project is based on architecture, cultural objects and natural scenery that were submerged due to the construction of the Three Gorges Dam. The project is an online interaction between Linz and real-time images from six major cities along the route. Viewers will be able to explore the virtual aspect of this community created in Second Life. This allows people in Linz to discover what existed before the dam was built. The Linz audience will be able to feel the present or future influences on Earth and on the residents — they can see the cultural and ethnic shifts that are all caused by the ecological changes in the Three Gorges region.
