Darij Kreuh / Iztok Bajec
"Trajectories of presence"

Our residency in Budapest comprises a continuation of the joint project begun in the autumn of 1998 in Graz. For the CSCC event organised by Richard Kriesche, we made an attempt to extend the Demedusator-system (Zoltán Szegedy-Maszák/Márton Fernezelyi) with a virtual reality system (Darij Kreuh/Iztok Bajec). Thus the framework of a distributed virtual reality system was realised by which people in different locations could meet. In Budapest we are attempting a continuation of this successful project. For the occasion of the C3 Open Day, the first step in this development will be presented: an interactive audiovisual environment, comprised of a car installed with a virtual reality interface in which the viewer can roam about. The viewers are not merely passive observers, but active figures in the space: their traces exist both in the form of visual changes in the VRML space and in the form of audible noises frozen in the space. The next step in development will be to set up a virtual environment in which the audience both in Ljubljana and in Budapest can interact in the VRML space via the virtual reality system built at C3, compatible with the two existing vehicles in Ljubljana. The project was realised in collaboration with Zoltán Szegedy-Maszák and Márton Fernezelyi.
