Hey everyone, new here.

I'm a senior at the Maryland Institute College of Art. (http://www.mica.edu
I came to this site as a resource for some research I'm doing for my thesis project.
I'm an Environmental Design major and am planning on designing an interactive installation.
I stumbled across some of the wii projects on Johnny Lee's page - (http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~johnny/projects/wii/ - and see the possibilities in taking these innovations further into a fully immersed and interactive art installation.

For my thesis I am dealing with ideas of perspective and the relationship between viewer and object.
I intend to investigate the possibilities of technology and engineering to create a experiential environment.
The term 'virtual' may come to mind, but I'm primarily interested in a more tangible experience, where the users interaction with objects and gestures 'shape' the space around them.

Anyone interested in collaborating or simply throwing around ideas can feel free to contact me.
Contributors to the project will be credited and an installation and gallery opening will take place at the end of spring semester '09.

I'm hoping that this will be a fun project and am excited for its application in the future.
