  • ©2006, Katherine Isbister and Rainey Straus, SimVeillance: San Jose

Artist Statement:

    SimVeillance: San Jose re-presents urban passersby within a game environment that mirrors a “real-world” public space. The artists have recreated Fairmont Plaza outside the San Jose Museum of Art using the Sims 2, and used images captured by surveillance cameras trained on the Plaza, to populate the simulated square with replicas of “real” transients.
