conFIGURING the cave

Virtual 3D sound-environment for multi-user. Multidirectional perspective.




"ConFIGURING the CAVE" is an interactive installation, based on cave-technologies. Pictures are projected on four walls in the room-installation. The spectator is immersed into a virtual and acoustic environment, they perceive room throughout a 3D-glasses. The interface is a life-sized wooden figure in the middle of the room. By moving their limbs and by changing the body-position they change this environment. This interface provides the transfer from one virtual environment to the next.
"ConFIGURING the CAVE" modifies the classic navigation principle of CAVE, because not the position of the spectators glasses are tracking to direct his view. The navigation is provided only through the wooden puppet. These new virtual scenarios of space are no longer guided by central perspective but go beyond.
