We had our midterm for my second term of the UW Virtual Worlds program. We toured the University of Washington BioDome sim to review each classmates work. Everyone had great plans for their plot and it was great to see how we all have different projects in mind. I built my educational center with an office, classroom, work area, gallery, and, of course, dancefloor. My theme was inspired by Japanese design. I used the lantern as a symbol of enlightenment, cherry trees mean education, poppies imagination, pearls for wisdom, and woven patterns to connect the tech with the loom. To add splashes of color, I made and posted my create crayons flags about the grounds. I really enjoyed my classmates’ work as well. Everyone is very talented and clever.
