Thursday's Fictions in Second Life, created by the team of Richard James Allen, Karen Pearlman, Gary Hayes and Jacqueline Turnure heralds a new direction in Second Life creativity. Launched in prototype in July 2007, this project allows the user, through their avatar, to enter the world of Thursday's Fictions, the surreal dance fantasy film. The user is given the opportunity to feel what it’s like to be one of the characters, to be inside the story. But even more significant is how the particulars of the story resonate with the medium. The theme of Thursday's Fictions, originally a book by Allen, is reincarnation, the transmigration of souls. Thursday's Fictions in Second Life places the Second Life user as a quester exploring knowledge of something which is, in the ‘real world’, completely unknowable. This unique intersection of spirituality and art is an unprecedented exploitation of the possibilities of Second Life to make a virtual world that is much more than an imitation of the material world.
