Stenger created the first immersive Virtual Reality movie:
1989 & 1992.
Tom Furness' theory, the piece was conceived for the 3 senses:
vision, audio & touch, though only vision, audio and a non
tactile data glove could be implemented at the time.
lack of computing power also reduced visuals to the bare minimum!
the entire movie was completed. And the higher resolution visuals
for a more advanced version of the technology were designed.These
original models can still be experienced today. (See video)
circumstances surrounding immersive VR made its pursuit impracticable,
if not utterly dangerous, Nicole Stenger moved her VR artistic
concepts to VRML, a more convivial, open to all, web-based environment.
the 2 VRML movies: CHAMBERS
(2001) and DYNASTY
(2007-2009) were also conceived for immersive VR.
