Driftnet (2007)

Materials

No worm equipment. Further use of a screen and ‘point grey bumblebee’ stereo-vision camera.

Technology

Anaglyphic red/cyan aspects in the camera shape the experience to your movement; creating a strong illusion of 3D depth.

Experience

You flap your ‘wings’ in front of the screen and in front of you a virtual world starts gliding past you in 3D. You steer the way through a dreamlike universe. By moving through the space participants are able to navigate the musical composition and influence the direction on the screen.
