in a virtual world, several of the usual features of nature do not exist. even though there is wind and sun and even moon in second life, there usually are no earthquakes. tectonics, a kinetic installation at water level, is a reflection on what the creators of the medium chose to implement (such as water), and what was regarded as unimportant or even disturbing the experience. tectonics, created in february 2008, consists of a variable number of hexagons, reminding of crystalline basalt structures, which move up and down randomly. it can still be seen at the museo del metaverso. a site-specific version called tectonics II was created later for brooklyn is watching.
