The Modern Museum is a collaboration platform for finding cross-disciplinary relations between Art, Science & Technology and Society, curated by Yan Lauria & comet Morigi, supported by University of the Incarnate Word.

Program

- Greeting by Co-Curators & host SIM owner in English (Yan Lauria & Vic Micharak)

- Short Guide Tour- Arts and Society from Renaissance to Romanticism (Giobanni Tweak)

- Workshop presentation "Cross-disciplinary in Second Life" (Yan Lauria) abstract; Multi-user online 3D environment like SL has a possibility to help inter/ trans-disciplinary and cross world understanding through 3D objects which adequately visualize contents and contexts, because communication using language only has a barrier due to difference of language, discipline and culture.

The speaker is editing a list of cross-disciplinary educational resources on "VW education Wiki", providing one prime teleporter including more than 300 educational places in SL, and now, curating the Modern Museum as a cross-disciplinary collaboration platform.
