Jayjay Zifanwe of the University of Western Australia (in real life Jay Jay Jegathesan, Physics UWA), takes us on a tour of the Second Life version of the University, and shows us the winners in this year’s challenges for art and machinima, as well as some fascinating work from this year and earlier challenges.

And you can also learn more about an exciting new Art Challenge – the Freedom Project.
