Osmose and Éphémère

Osmose and Éphémère are ground-breaking immersive virtual reality installations conceived, produced and directed by Montréal based artist Char Davies. I was honored to be a member of the creative team which designed and wrote the software, and constructed the physical mechanism for performing these two works.

Osmose was premiered in 1995 at the Musée d'art contemporain do Montréal, and Éphémère was premiered in 1998 at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa. Both of these works have since been exhibited at galleries and museums around the world. There is currently an effort underway in Spain to update both works to run on modern hardware.

The creative team consisted of:

Char Davies, director
John Harrison, custom VR software
George Mauro, computer graphics
Dorota Błazsczak, sonic architecture and programming
Rick Bidlack, composition and programming
