Chris Marker - Virtual Home on Second LifeChris Marker is an international author, photographer, film director, multimedia artist and documentarist. Born in France 1921 he became well known for his films 'Twelve Monkeys' and 'Sans Soleil', although often at the centre of media attention he does not allow himself to be photographed or to be interviewed in person. When asked for a photograph of himself he gives an image of his alter ego, an orange cartoon cat, 'Monsieur Guillaume-en-Egypt'
Marker is now a devoted inhabitant of the virtual world Second Life, providing the best medium for him to present himself via his alter ego, he is now widely known via his virtual counter part. In 2008 he hosted a virtual exhibition of his life work alongside an interview on the gaming platform, and continues to live his public life via Second Life.
