Simulation of a Feeling is a virtual scene constructed of dual holographic cubes within a Second Life landscape. From the cubes Thalia Raftopoulou reads aloud descriptions about platonic solids in her text-to-speech voice. The simulation is an experiment in virtual presence modeled after the weird feeling I had while watching the 1999 virtual reality themed film eXistenZ.
