We introduce a novel approach to the creation of Virtual Reality Art installations, which supports the design of alternative worlds, in which laws of Physics can be redefined to induce new user experiences. To implement this concept of "Alternative Reality", we have used Artificial Intelligence techniques to support the definition of the virtual environment(More)
Virtual Reality Artworks provide sophisticated user experiences but their development is a complex process. We describe the use of Intelligent Virtual Environments for VR Art. In this approach, virtual world behaviour is governed by a symbolic system. This supports news forms of experimentation with physical laws or with causality that we have termed(More)
In this paper, we describe an approach to artificial life, which uses Qualitative Reasoning for the simulation of life within a 3D virtual environment. This system uses qualitative formalisms to describe both the physiology of a virtual creature and its environment. This approach has two main advantages: the possibility of representing integrated(More)
Artificial Life has been an inspiration for Virtual Reality Art, which has proposed the design of imaginary life forms and has also used ALife techniques in various installations. The creation of imaginary life forms has been so far limited to the external appearance of these creatures. We introduce a novel approach to the design of artificial life forms,(More)
