The collaborative group VITAL SIGNS, composed of artists and computer programmers at the University of California, San Diego, created a computer-generated virtual reality environment using video projections that combined the real with the virtual. An effort to understand and investigate the then new virtual technology and its impact of the real gave rise to the group’s project, titled APPARITIONS. Within the created environment of APPARITIONS one could interact on screen under an assumed identity with other participants who had entered the created world.
