PLACEHOLDER: Landscape and Narrative in a Virtual Environment (1993 project documentation)
This Virtual Reality experiment explored potentials for narrative action on the part of players in a simulated landscape. The work incorporated elements of local mythology and actual locations in the Canadian Rockies. Three-dimensional videographic scene elements, spatialized sounds and voices, and simple character animation were employed to construct places in a virtual environment that could be visited concurrently by two physically remote participants wearing head-mounted displays. Produced at the Banff Centre for the Arts by Brenda Laurel and Rachel Strickland.
