“CavePainting is an artistic medium that uses a 3D analog of 2D brush strokes to create 3D works of art in an immersive virtual reality Cave environment. Like charcoal lines or paint strokes, these 3-dimensional marks are a fluid, highly flexible visual language that is brought to life by an interface responsive to the artist. The virtual reality interface is composed completely of physical props and gestures. There are several ongoing artistic collaborations using the system. In addition, researchers are currently investigating leveraging artistic theory and lessons learned about visual representation in the Cave to help solve visual representation problems in scientific domains.”
