EVL’s participation in SIGGRAPH 98 included virtual reality demonstrations using an ImmersaDesk2 in the “Guerilla VR” venue at the Digital Pavilions (Emerging Technologies) and a roving ImmersaDesk3 throughout the Conference venues.
Four of the art and education VR applications were networked between the two IDesks; “Dimension World”, “Interiors”, “The Round Earth Project” and “The Thing Growing”.
Three applications were stand-alone; “Grid”, “Las Meninas” and “Mitologies”.
The pieces showed a variety of methods for creating interactive VR work.
EVLers also took part in the following events:
Maxine Brown was awarded the first SIGGRAPH outstanding service award for unselfish dedication and exceptional volunteer contributions. As she was unable to attend, EVL graduate students and alumni accepted the award on her behalf.
