ps Char Davies made a virtual world (osmose I think) where one could sink
through a landscape of trees, streams etc, to a field of text beneath
everything, the text being the code that generated the environment of the
artwork. Kind of nicely self referential, amusing and profound.

Yes, I believe it was Osmose, although it's been a while. The interesting thing is that one navigated this space through the use of a vestthat monitored your breathing. In this way, I think it was one o=f the more interesting metaphors for embodiment al la Hayles (body of data/body of flesh/body of text/body of code(S) ).
