Reminds me of Katherine Isbister and Rainey Straus installation "Simbee" from 2004. "SimBee parodies the work of Vanessa Beecroft in a modified Sims video game. The artists have crafted Sim replicas of Beecroft's scantily-clad models, and let them loose to 'live' within a gallery space for the duration of an exhibition, encouraging the viewer to consider how issues of exploitation and voyeurism are shifted when filtered through the lens of simulation."
