MUSEUM OF MOVING IMAGE

SURF A NEW YORK CITY METAPHOR IN RT 3D

Virtual world installation piece built in collaboration with Toronto-based interactive art director Priam Givord. At the Museum of the Moving Image in NYC, one can freely surf a city metaphor in real time 3D projected on a giant screen using a controller or programmable sequencing of camera views loop. The virtual world and photographic prints have been shown at the SIGGRAPH in San Diego, CA, and the Design Exchange in Toronto among others.

NYXTNY is not the way to learn the city’s turn-by-turn layout. Rather, it is an impressionist representation of those streets that leaves one feeling a sense of ‘New York-ness’.... Perhaps the methods Givord and Lenclos employed will soon be de rigueur among site designers wanting to take visitors inside their products or geographies.... They created something that may well change the way we conceive, look at, and construct virtual space – and that includes the virtual universe that will soon be streaming to you across the web.
