Mixed reality, realtime 3D environment (Second Life) with physical controller
01SJ Biennial: Superlight
San Jose Museum of Art
May 10 – August 31, 2008

An immersive audiovisual volumetric virtual sculpture in Second Life that uses a beautiful realworld physical controller. Rather than a simple one-way control model, the physical device and virtual artwork are in a symbiotic relationship where each influences the other. The result is an experiential audiovisual physical/virtual sculpture played collaboratively over the internet in realtime by physical and virtual players. Using the physical device is just as playful as experiencing the immersive virtual artwork, and both influence each other.
