Stephen Bingham, one of the founders of the computer graphics firm Alias, shows a movie he made to caution against the dangers of cyberspace and virtual reality. He equates cyberspace with drugs, and predicts that if virtual reality technology continues developing along current paths it will lead to a dystopian world. Through a fictional narrative, Bingham comments on the mesmerizing influence media has in our lives, and stresses the inadequate awareness of the gender and sexuality aspects of technology.

Boigon documents his current work, “The Cartoon Regulators.” He describes this computer-generated animation as introducing agents into a cartoon world. Boigon then illustrates the process of developing 3D animation in Alias: animation software developed for the movie industry. These experiments in the animation platform, Boigon explains, allow for the manipulation of information that is no longer inorganic but alive.
