Description:
The interactive installation intends to examine the connections between "real" and virtual space, "real movement" and the illusion of motion. The interface of Promenade is an ultrasonic position tracker built into a torch: the position measured by the tracker directs the position of the viewpoint in the virtual space. By walking in the exhibition room while holding the navigation-device the visitor can explore the dynamically changing virtual space, in which the geometry of the scene is continuously being modified according to the viewer's motion. By approaching the projection screen (virtually stepping through the picture) the visitor can step into a new space: in a certain distance the virtual world will automatically switch to the next room, where other perspective-tricks await the visitor. (Z.Sz-M.)
