"All footages in the short movie "ILLUSION" are taken in Second Life, which is an 3D online virtual game. In Second Life, you can create your own virtual ego, be whoever we want to be and do whatever we want to do.
The main actor in "ILLUSION" is Chara Oh. Chara Oh is my virtual ego in Second Life and he is controlled by me - a 23 years girl in real life. In second life, Chara Oh ( = I ) meet another virtual ego called Agne Auer ( the girl in the movie). After chatting in the virtual world, we feel like that we like each other. So we started virtual relationship in Second Life. The footages are some of the screen captures I took when we were together.
The film emphasis the virtual egos, questions the notion of "self-identities". How many sides can we have as a person? The film also alludes emptiness and solitude emotions inside modern city people."
