Please provide a concise description of the project's technical aspects (250 words
2) Enumerate the specific techniques/products/programs/languages/toolkits that you will be employing to realize the project, including relevant version numbers (example, PHP 4.3). If any of these are commercial products you'll need to purchase, please include the price.
3) If your project requires the procurement of a domain name [our preference is that turbulence.org will host the project], please specify why this is necessary, and where you plan to have the domain(s) hosted.
4) What portion of the project will be realized on the turbulence.org server? Be specific, including figures on disk usage and memory requirements. Be sure to characterize the impact on the the server (i.e. sporadic CGI scripts vs a constant daemon process running in the background). Also include figures on the number of people in your project who would need access to the turbulence.org server, and in what manner (ftp access, shell access, etc.).
5) What portion of the project (if any) will be realized on server(s) other than turbulence.org? Please describe this specifically and characterize the interaction between the servers.
6) If possible, please state the approximate monthly bandwidth you anticipate using for this project.
Life (SL) is a streaming 3D environment that allows the avatar to move in
and among the objects in the "world." To this end nearby objects appear
in the open source client or user's view as they are loaded from the remote server.
There are basically three types of media in this environment. They are (a)
shape based; (b) texture based; and/or (c) script based using Linden
Scripting Language (LSL). The shape based objects include everything from
architecture to avatar attachments like shoes; texture based entities include
images and streaming video; and script based objects interact with the
previous two and the world outside SL.
Interactive is located
in the Central Square neighborhood of Cambridge, MA. The exhibition space is approximately
2,000 square feet with 16-foot ceilings. Two exterior glass walls provide extensive
natural light, and the space can be partitioned by four movable modular wall panels.
Visits to the space during gallery hours are encouraged, and a floor plan is available
