Tamás Waliczky, Sebastian Egner, Jeffrey Shaw :: The Forest (for Simulation Platform) [1993]

Tamás Waliczky’s computer animation »Der Wald« becomes part of an interactive installation, based on a flight simulator whose cockpit is replaced by a simple platform with a seat and a large monitor. Using a joystick mounted in the arm of the seat, the viewer can negotiate his own path through the forest, which is shown on the screen in front of him. The flight simulator reacts accordingly, so that changes of speed or direction are experienced as physical sensations.

Type of Work
Interactive application for simulation platform
