The Travels of Mariko Horo: Movie Demos

interactive 3D virtual reality installation


The following are demo recordings excerpted from the 3D interactive experience. The image quality is severely reduced by the compression process. For the true image quality please see the screenshots under the link "Description and Images."

Please note that each of these movies represent only one of many possible experiences with the virtual world, as the real experience is interactive and therefore depends on the choices and actions of the individual voyager.
Additionally, The Travels of Mariko Horo is a room installation to be shown on a large screen (3m x 4m or 9'x12'), an immersive experience that is in no way conveyed by viewing a tiny movie on a computer monitor!

 

5 minute demo: description of the installation

This demo video gives a voice-over description of the piece and its background.


 

20 minute mp4 walkthrough of the virtual world

This movie shows one possible path through the virtual world, uncommented so you can hear the sound, and traversing several scenes. Your actual experience of the piece would depend on your own choices what to look at and where to go.
