This presentation describes the findings from Visual recreation, culture appropriation: An Asian artist’s perspective of virtual world visual culture. This research is based on my previous research on the Third Culture and asks if we should be open minded and generous to recreated virtual builds that might appropriate a culture? Should we view virtual builds as artistic creations with freedom and without context? Or should we view virtual builds as cultural creations and be mindful?

Participants will be able to reconsider virtual culture development from an Asian perspective.
Participants will be able to review the ethics of cultural objects recreation in virtual worlds.
