Confluxus is a collaborative virtual reality artwork which is procedurally generated through user interaction. The space is designed to be a community meeting area where participants from varied backgrounds can come together in a tele-immersive environment and cooperate to create a shared experience. Participants were able to join into the shared space from physically remote VR systems. Through the passage of time, the space evolves into a collective expression of the participants intentions. The virtual objects and activities in the space begin as pre-determined constructs by the artists and gradually develop based on user-input.
Confluxus is an architectural portal that reacts to the positions and movements of the users within it by revealing only the parts of the structure that are within users' proximity. Within this space, the participants can see each others' avatars leaving trails over time from their wake in the 3D architectural grid. From here, participants are able to move to other artworks.
