vrmlSITE

The "vrmlSITE" (1998) by Kas Oosterhuis and Ilona Lénárd was an open online discussion environment in VRML featuring a live interdisciplinary debate.

Developed by architect Kas Oosterhuis (NL) and artist Ilona Lénárd (H/NL), the vrmlSITE is an open online discussion environment in VRML featuring a live-debate between architects, designers and theorists.The discussion is open to the public who can log on as an audience-avatar into the VRML environment. vrmlSITE contains free-floating, characteristic elements of projects by the participants. Each participant is represented by an avatar which is not a person but a small 3D world in itself, so that participants and audience experience parallel 3D worlds talking to each other. The participants can trigger events – by clicking on words in the vrmlSITE – during the discussion.
