An odd aside to start the week: here’s a piece of New York-based designer Daniel Sinisterra’s conceptual work playing on the popular virtual world, Second Life. In Sinisterra’s words:
A web experience where players can engage in a fictional or virtual experience and craft their life to their liking, and skill sets. “GET A SECOND CHANCE” is a concept where you can correct real life’s little mishaps.
Check out Sinisterra’s site for more, including racier posters titled “Malpractice” and “Teen mistake,” here.
