Symposium, and how this may effect individual artists working in 3d
online media. Unfortunately Mark Pesce can no longer join our discussion as
was previously advised.

Please note this may be a technically demanding discussion if you are not
used to 3d content, however if you can not view the works directly there is
documentation and screen shots available on the web3d art site and at most
artists sites. "Browsers used are Netscape and Explorer, OS-Linux, Windows,
Macintosh, plugins in the projects include Cortona, NeMo, Shockwave, Cosmo
Player and Blaxxun - links to these download sites are included in the
Web3DArt site. We recommend close attention to technical specifications
given for each work." - From the curators introduction
