Concept: Current Times (working title)
Social commentary on current times where people are in a physical world yet trapped in the digital world, where they only communicate digitally.
How this translates to the windows:
Window 1 Standard: Sterile-ish, blah office scene. Live person sits at desk in front of the computer where they are chatting with people outside of the window via their avatar.
Window 2 Standard: Avatar of live person appears on big screen. Live feed of chat appears in second, smaller screen. The live person responds in real time and interacts through chat AND by altering the animations of their avatar.
Window 1 Empty: Either an empty room with “Will be back at___” sign OR a dummy sleeping at a desk will be in the window when no live person is present.
Window 2 Empty: The avatar appears sleeping on the big screen, surrounded by social media icons, of which have numbers of missed messages growing over the time the live person is away (arbitrarily). In smaller screen the chat continues as people outside of the window message in. A tally appears above showing how many missed messages.
