Art and exhibitions
Virtual Reality (and 3D in general) is a powerful platform for many artistic applications. HPC/V has created several museum exhibits and also supports artists creating works in 3D. The Reality Cube has served as a platform for an abstract art work, and a play has been performed in the Reality Theatre.
In collaboration with the Minerva School of Art, HPC/V created a 3D film for the Groninger Museum, for the exhibition about A.E. van Giffen, a famous Dutch archaeologist. In this film, real-life actors and computer-generated images (of a reconstructed excavation site) were seamlessly blended in 3D. »
2.5 DimensionsMartijn Kragtwijk supported Michiel J. Koelink of the Frank Mohr Institute with his work '2.5 Dimensions'. It takes the viewer on a random walk through an infinite virtual forest, which consists of high resolution panoramic pictures of a real forest.
Floating SculptureFrans van Hoesel and Berk Hess realized the virtual art work Floating Sculpture, created by Marte Röling, for the opening of the Zernikeborg in September 2002. This work of art can still be seen in the Reality Cube.
Levels of Detail
In the elevator of the Zernikeborg, the HPC/V has mounted a special mirror. When turned on it acts like a computer screen. Various applications produce images, but whatever is shown, the contents always depend in some way on the position of the elevator cabin. There is a different show every day.
In collaboration with the Centre for High Performance Computing and Visualisation, Rune Peitersen created some short animation films with flesh-like objects.
