A “virtual environment” is an installation that takes place in a virtual world and in some cases it is a “hybrid” which means it is showing in both a virtual world and real world location at the same time. So for example Family unit was shown for a month to thousands of people in the virtual world while also playing on a monitor in a real world museum in Rome, Italy.
