TROIA VIRTUAL REALITY GUIDED TOUR /
BUNDESKUNSTHALLE BONN

As part of a larger research project ART+COM developed a two-screen interface to be used by a presenter to give a seated audience of up to 300 people a tour through several layers of a digital reconstruction of ancient Troy. The guide could use a 2D map of the town in combination with time layers and move directly in the 3D virtual environment with a space mouse. Both screens were projected for the audience.

The software also allowed to turn on and off the reconstructions as assumed by the archaeologists based on the - in relation to the reconstruction - small amount of findings.

The underlying message is the probability of archaeological reconstructions, as there is a large amount of informed guesswork involved. Further tools for these means were conceptualised (such as alternative versions of reconstructions and sliders for the likehood of reconstructions) but through budget constraints did not make it into realisation.

My part was co-development of the concept and co-screendesign for the 2D interface. The dynamic behaviour and programming was conceived and realised by computational designers and programmers.
