Avatar and terminal identity (part 2)

8 février 2010

Avatar raises the issue of terminal identity, the one that depends on screens to grow and evolve. The film sets us in such a situation as to make us experience any sorts of representational states, in reality and in virtuality, —be it in the container for connection/fusion or in the training camp with its interactive holograms and its geostrategic navigation maps. All the possibilities of simulation are explored, including the extreme possibility of staying in the simulated space of one’s choice.
