Virtual Entity

Virtual Entity is a research project (and a work of art) whose practical foundation is software to publish, release and catalogue digital files. The project's assumption is that every digital entity is an independent creation which has its own life and is able to experience different levels of transformation and progressive generation of meaning, shape and entities.

The two main functions of the application are the creation of a metadata set on a database online and the possibility to use the software also as a license. From a theoretical point of view the speculation focuses on the concept of (non) property in the digital/immaterial world and on an ontological redefinition of the entities inhabiting it.
