Michael Wright: 2010-11 Faculty Development Grant Report


By the fall of 2009 my studio business, M Ragsdale Wright Studios, was in total support of the I BE AM sim at the educator’s price and the Library had chosen to drop the College sim. I BE AM had several years worth of work, that was in process, that I didn’t want to loose and my syllabus included a third years student project. So I choose to purchase a homestead sim next to I BE AM. This amounted to 16 acres of virtual land and limited building blocks for the student project. The following is a description of the project: Virtual World Project 09: Anarchy City.
