Exercise in Immersion 4 Marnix de Nijs (V2_) 2007 head-mounted display, sensors, microphone, video, sound, video, generative abstract animation, sound, single-user, 360 choice of perspective, large field of view, reactive to head position, game with unknown goal, unconscious choices about narrative, indoors, anywhere, long setup, game, art-game, Deaf 07, crash suit
The headset is equipped with a sensor system that can couple the exact position of the user in reality with previously designed imagery. On the display built into the headset, a combination between the real world and the virtual-constructed world becomes visible.The virtual world corresponds with the existing environment through a number of clearly marked reference points, such as walls, pillars and doors. Without movement, the player remains in reality and there is no possibility to take part in the game. Movement and game progression results in the manipulation of the existing space that in the long run will transform into a virtual environment. In the most extreme case, the representation of the existing space will be completely replaced with a new and unknown world.
Golden Calf Jeffrey Shaw 1994 handheld display, Tilt sensors, pedestal, still, single-user, 360 small field of view reacts to hand position, no narrative, space-specific, reflections of the venue, calf, window, reflections, shiny
This work is constituted by a white pedestal on which there stands an LCD colour monitor connected to computing machinery by a cable running through the pedestal. The viewer of this work picks up and holds this monitor in his hands. The screen shows a representation of the pedestal with a computer-generated image of a golden calf on top. By moving the monitor around the actual pedestal the viewer can examine this golden calf from above and below and all sides. Thus the monitor functions like a window that reveals a virtual body apparently located physically in the real space.
Growth Christopher Manzione (The Virtual Public Art Project) 2010 smartphone, GPS, motion sensors, videofeed location, 3d still, single-user, 360 small field of view, reacts to hand position, no narrative, space-specific, layar, locative media, virtual statue
Growth is a virtual public sculpture composed of a multitude of fractal polygons that coalesce into an asymmetrical three-dimensional form. The virtual public sculpture originated as a physical form created by the artist by hand and was scanned into the digital world.
HoloCubtile (Immersion, ANR) 2009 sculpture and mirror, motion and tactile sensors, human gestures, generative animation, multi-user, 180 large field of view, reacts to hand gestures, interactive non-linear narrative, could be placed anywhere indoors, long setup time required, tactile, cube, light, mirror, hologram, Laval Virtual
The HoloCubtile is an augmented reality device that makes use of a mirror to blend the visualization and interaction spaces. That way, the three-dimensional object really appears in the reflected user’s hands,
Livingroom2 Jan Torpus, Roderick Galantay, Bennet Uk (Swiss National Science Foundation,, iart) 2007 headmounted display, tracking sensors, videofeed, animation, single-user, 360 large field of view, reactive to head position, interactive non-linear narrative, anywhere indoors, long setup, science-fiction, design, decoration
The room is approached as an illusionary space, a simulation of a possible future experience of daily life instead of a tool for content development. In ‘living-room2’ the space itself becomes the object of transformation. In the virtual layer, the room can be visually transformed, reconstructed, extended, etc. Thus, the user becomes part of an immersive environment. By giving the visitor the possibility to “change the space”, living-room2 offers new opportunities for applications in the fields of Architecture, Scenography, Tourism, Museology and Education.
