Char Davies: Osmose

"The medium of 'immersive virtual space', or virtual reality- as it is generally known- has intriguing potential as an arena for constructing metaphors about our existential being-in-the-world and for exploring consciousness as it is experienced subjectively, as it is felt."

Charlotte Davis "Changing Space: Virtual Reality as an Arena of the Embodied Being" (1997).

Charlotte Davies, artist, painter and film maker achieved international recognition for her artworks that employ the technologies of virtual reality. Her transition from traditional materials: paint and film began around 1985 when Davies began to explore 3-d computer imaging techniques. In 1987 she became a founding director of Softimage, a 3-D software company that created special effects for Hollywoods films , most notably for Spielberg's Jurassic Park.

Davies adopted the Softimaging programme for her own artistic purposes culminating the immersive multimedia work Osmose.
