Is it art, is it a commercial or is it disinformation, when web-designers create a virtual model out of the so-called best parts of different top-models?
Kyoko data-project: the virtual model and pop-star is not only regarded as a virtual thing but "had" a biography, a family and everything else that a famous star would have. She was not even less reachable as any of them. For example she received tons of love-letters by Japanese teenagers. The question arising is whether she can be regarded as a product for making money or whether the media-enterprise HoriPro that invented her (isn't it much more comfortable to have a virtual star that doesn't have wishes and needs?), wants to get a certain message through by marketing her. The answer tends to be "both".
