    Osomse and Ephemere
    1995, 1998

    "Osmose (1995) is an immersive virtual environment with stereoscopic 3D computer graphics, spatialised sound and real time interaction. The interface consists of a stereoscopic head-mounted display and real-time motion tracking based on breath and balance. There are nearly a dozen world-spaces in Osmose, most based on metaphorical aspects of nature. Immersants are able to journey anywhere within these worlds, as well as hover in the ambiguous transition areas.

    Ephémère (1998) is an immersive virtual environment with real-time display of 3D computer graphics and interactive 3D localised sound. The interface consists of a stereoscopic head-mounted display and real-time motion tracking based on breath and balance. Like Osmose, Ephémère's iconography is grounded in 'nature' as metaphor. In Ephémère however, Osmose's repertoire of trees, rocks and streams is extended to include body organs, arteries and bones, intended to suggest a symbolic correspondence between body and earth. Ephémère is structured into three levels: landscape, subterranean earth, and a substratum of interior body flesh."
