SICS [Swedish Institute of Computer Science] :: The Web Planetarium [1998]

The »Web Planetarium« is a spatially dynamic representation of the Internet. The viewer moves through a three-dimensional planetarium: the actual browsing through the virtual space determines the constellation of abstracted Internet pages. Symbols, as for instance a sphere or other geometrical forms, represent the individual sites, while the connections between them are represented as arrows. »The Web Planetarium« presents a conception of individualized storage and transmission of information. Anchored within - > EVE, the visitor is immediately situated at the center of his self-constructed network of knowledge.

Type of Work
Interactive application using - > EVE
