November 11th 2018 marked the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that brought the First World War to an end. Signed at the eleven hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the Armistice silenced the guns that had killed so many over the four years of the War.
At 11:10 GMT (3:10am Pacific), on November 11th, 2018, Designing Worlds released a special short film to mark the occasion.
The film combines imagery from the University of Oxford's First World War Poetry Digital Archive at the Frideswide region in the virtual world of Second Life and public domain photography with readings of poetry from the period. The Archive was originally created in 2009 and was the subject of Designing Worlds episode 64, which is also available on Vimeo at https://vimeo.com/user1996042/dw064
You can still visit the Archive at Frideswide in Second Life. You can obtain a hud at the training camp to help you navigate around the region.
