Tutsy Navarathna

A Journey into the Metaverse

Abstract:
This machinima is a metaphorical tale questioning relations established between reality and virtuality through our avatars and the play on the double meaning of the word ‘avatar’ refering to its original Sanskrit meaning of a spiritual quest. This movie won Machinima UWA III and Jury Prize at Machinima Expo 2011.
