In "Spirited Ruins," you will explore all that remains of a palace built by an ancient civilization. The people of this civilization believed that inanimate objects such as artwork and furniture would be infused with life if created in precisely the right form and proportions. Advances in virtual reality technology, combined with the visions of invited artists, now make it possible for you to see and hear the palace as its mythical designers envisioned it: sculptures respond to your presence, familiar and unfamiliar creatures wander about, and the palace itself seems to come to life as you traverse its hallways, rooms, and gardens.
"Spirited Ruins" continues to develop since its debut during the Boston CyberArts Festival as "Gateway to Spirited Ruins". Artists who are interested in becoming involved in the project are encouraged to contact us.
