Computing power grows exponentially every eighteen months. Because of this rapid growth it's supposed to be possible to enter the virtual world trough mind uploading in the couple next decade. This will be a reality which we've never seen before.

I'm interested in the properties of the virtual world compared to the physical world. As a base for my work I use the laws of nature of the physical world and experiment how the virtual world functions under comparable circumstances. Step-by-step I perform tests and document the results. I feel like a scientist: it's like I'm documenting the rules and laws of the virtual world.
The autonomy of the virtual world is fundamentally different than that of the physical world and the tests I perform often result into glitched images.
