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
at the Bauhaus-University in Weimar, Germany.

Geometries of Power has been used in 2 online events:
