Gallery on the Grid
Gallery on the Grid demonstrates an exciting new application of the Access Grid. Over the Access Grid, groups of visitors at sites across the country can interact with both the art works and with each other through numerous digital video streams, audio, and various input methods. The art works also have an integrated virtual reality component which can be viewed with stereo glasses on an ImmersaDesk.
