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!
