Artist Statement:


    These images are from a Virtual Reality Installation in the CAVE. In this work, participants interact with a time lapse, 360-degree, 3D panorama based on video images captured on Poverty Island, an island in the archipelago from Death’s Door to the Garden Peninsula in Lake Michigan.

    In the late 1980s and through the 1990s, real-time computer graphics and interactivity were back (largely thanks to Silicon Graphics). I now have real-time computation, real-time computer graphics, and real-time interaction combined with a stunning display that surrounds the participant and matches well the two-eyed, two-eared moving human.

    The CAVE was developed by the students and faculty (scientists and artists) of the Electronic Visualization Laboratory, the School of Art and Design, and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at The University of Illinois at Chicago.
