Virtual World of Art

The DEVMAP project is feeded with new content throughout the duration of the DEAF04 festival. New textures and pictures are captured from events and artworks and are then mapped onto the virtual spaces.

Three visitors can visit DEVMAP simultaneously. Visitors influence their world when navigating through the virtual spaces. Depending on the routes they take and the works they visit, the environment, as well as the body of their avatar, will look different each visit and each day.

The visitors share the same virtual space, see each other and can chat with each other but every visitor sees his world in a unique way depending on the personal choices they have made in the virtual world.

This looks amazing to me… the fact that they’re using a Quake3-engine and the fact they use (semi)realtime-content does have a major attraction I guess… I hope a similar installation is to be found on the What the Hack festival next month…
