Joff Chafer and Ian Upton create a shared space that virtual and physical people can inhabit.
The workshop investigated techniques to support a proposed Stelarc installation where we plan to extract avatars into real space and insert physical people into virtual space. The workshop was successful and we have developed all the techniques to enable us to do this.
This video sequence presents a timelapse sequence of our last day. Visitors wore anaglyph glasses giving real depth to the shared space. Avatars were extracted. People were inserted. People met their avatars on a one to one basis!
We would like to thank Stelarc for his support and Coventry University for funding the research.
