Re: [-empyre-] Re: space and immersion
one place to explore more on this is at
clay graham does a wonderful job of explaining the basic concepts
enjoying listening to the discussion!
every time i look at a computor screen i am some how reminded of the whole
tragic history of representation,from the camera obscura to the computor
the world defined in a rectangle box, the painters skill rested on how
successfully they could create an illusion of a third dimensional space.are we
still trying to do the same thing instead using electrons.
when we play computor games the immmersion come from the way our ego kicks in
and the way these game cross directly to the fight or flight core of our being.
i haven't looked at all the works yet ,but what i have seen has been incredibly
beutiful will give a more considered response when i have worked out what it is
that really intrigueing about this world of flying electrons.
i must admit a fear of immersion, what if one became stuck in toon town.to me
it has a science fiction quality like when they immerse the astronaut in liquid
before going into hyper drive, perhaps we will need similar biological
alteration for the toal immersive
