The Living Image is a unique virtual reality installation art project utilising stereoscopic screen projection and motion tracking technology more commonly used by the scientific and architectural communities to create an immersive virtual reality narrative experience. Individuals will enter a multi-sensory interactive installation art space wearing stereoscopic glasses to allow them to see 3-D environments on a large screen. The virtual installation is designed to blur the line between what is real and what is computer-generated. The Living Image explores an art interpretation of London through the use of Virtual Reality (VR). Whereas Virtual Reality often strives to develop a "hyper-real" version of the world, this artwork generates a more abstract experience. This is a unique collaboration comprising a theatre designer, Roma Patel, an architectural sculptor (site specific sculptor), Trudi Entwistle and an installation artist, Graham Nicholls. Using the city -in the widest sense- as raw material, the artists are combining video and selected Virtaul Reality technologies to build a virtual interactive installation space composed of abstractions of this material. The aim is to investigate how the city is experienced. People are invited to investigate this space and the scenarios and interactivity they contain. Recorded sequences and live responses allow the user to follow their own journey. The piece aims to go beyond the physical and literal appearance of a city. Translating essences of contemporary London through the artists' memories and perception, Virtaul Reality is a way to bring this psychological and physical space together. An additional layer of perception has been sought from children - their views, responses and memories regarding living in London. Motion tracking devices will be placed in the installation space to enable the participant to control their navigation. The extent and feeling of immersion will depend on the participant's willingness to explore the interactive elements, which range from automatically generated fragments of sound and abstract imagery, to video and text.
