Geometries of Power
"Geometries of Power" is a multi-user online 3D world that uses
the interactive characteristics of space, geometry and sound
to question concepts of power and control.
Shared event VRML technology enables participants
to collaboratively create a visual environment in real time.
It was developed during a workshop on
Interactive 3D Virtual Reality Environments
