It’s about the fact that every action has a cause. People don’t fly airplanes into a building without a reason..a reason of pain, in your close area, like your wife or daughter. And the question of ” why” is something I miss often in (American) mass media.


Purpose of this video is to think about causes, in terroristic acts, but also in criminality in general. What causes criminal behaviour? Can that be avoided? Take away pain, fear and hopelessness.

Terrorists don’t fly airplanes into buildings without reasons. Reasons often caused by pain, suffering/death of wifes/children. Western arms trying to stop the bleeding of this daughter.. without any use..

Arthole - ORIENTATION

For the occasion of the PICNIC08 I filmed the 2 great new works, showing art on Second Life is evolving to a higher quality level.


ORIENTATION – Arthole
a commentary on the nature of corporate conformity
by Arahan Claveau & Nebulosus Severine

Avatar Orchestra Metaverse
The New Economy – by Blaise DeLaFrance Voom

Using in-world instruments. The sounds grow stronger when the camera approaches.
Concerts are played with people all over the world.
Instruments are created specific for each piece. These instruments also feature visuals and animations, and performances of a jumping, hovering, floating, dancing and twirling Avatar.

Orchestra Metaverse is a truly unique and spectacular event.
The Orchestra approach Second Life as an instrument itself.
The result is dependent on both the performers and the virtual environment
in which they play. (D, I, CA, USA, N, UK)

Preview about the underground world in Second Life. Which parts are hidden and forbidden? Appearance is communication, and with total control of appearance, what is the desired reaction? Freedom of thoughts?

This work was a reaction of the article that paedophilia was found on Second Life, I tried to make a movie what this actually looked like. After this article many businesses backed out of Second Life, not wanting to be affiliated. Research and Think for Yourself!
