OneAvatar was shown at the third edition of the Milano in Digitale 
event. An installation featuring a 3D game in which players could shoot 
the OneAvatar character, causing electric shocks to hit the body of the 
player wearing the OneAvatar suit, creating a phisical connection 
between our physical bodies and our identities in the digital worlds.
The installation features the results of the research coming from the 
OneAvatar project: technology, emotion, identity, relational dimensions 
in the digital domains are some of the fundamental topics analyzed.
For the event a complete marketing and communication strategy was 
produced to create a fictional, but realistic and produceable, product 
to create the narrative level of the performance: the performer was 
displayed as in a shopping center showcase, with the product and the 
related gadgets available for sale. A further analysis on the evolution 
of art in the contemporary era, in its hybridization wth communication, 
marketing and ethnographical practices.
