(HiPArt), Art projects from around the grid

Art projects from around the grid allows visitors to explore 3D animated virtual spaces created by collaborating designers, painters, and musicians.

The virtual environments are shown on Boston University's Deep Vision Display Wall, a 15'x8', high-resolution, 12-tile, rear-projected, passive stereo display system. The experience is enhanced with 8-way directional sound.

HiPArt (High Performance Computing in the Arts) is an outreach program coordinated by the Scientific Computing and Visualization group at Boston University fostering a collaboration between software developers and artists and making high performance computing, networking, and graphics resources available to the art community. HiPArt's previous projects include The Stitched Wall Project, Gallery on the Grid, Spirited Ruins, and ArtWorld.
