The Simulator is an html-based work of a banal 'interactive' day. It was given the honours of Cool :site of The Day, Yahoo! Pick of the Week, ProjectCool's cool site of the day and Microsoft Network's Pick of the Day. It was also seen in SPIN, Yahoo! Japan, The Web, The Washington Post and tons of other publications.
Garnet Hertz, creator, states that "the physical existence within The Simulator is formulated in a drab, non-eventful manner - similar to the physical existences led by many. The pattern of sleeping, showering, eating breakfast, working, eating supper, watching TV, and sleeping symbolizes a common daily ritual. Using this pattern alerts the viewer to similar patterns in their life, brings to mind other banal patterns in society, and possibly brings into question the usefulness and value of this banal and repetitious existence".
This is an interactive, simply designed project that can become a little depressing after realising that people actually live the life of The Simulator. Continually maintaining its popularity, Hertz's project has been given a lot of press in a variety of magazines and websites.
