Back cover of the ACM Computer Graphics Quarterly Volume 28 Number 2 May 1994
Placeholder was a Virtual
Reality project produced by Interval Research Corporation and The Banff Centre
for The Performing Arts, and directed by Brenda Laurel and Rachel Strickland, which
explored a new paradigm for multi-person narrative action in
virtual environments at the Banff Centre in 1992. The
Placeholder archive - composed of over 490 megabytes of working
papers, published reports, video clips, sounds, and
retrospective comments - is available on a Macintosh CD-ROM by
special arrangement (email firstname.lastname@example.org with a request). Placeholder: Landscape
and Narrative In Virtual Environments - published in
the ACM Computer Graphics Quarterly by Brenda Laurel, Rachel Strickland, and Rob Tow - provides an overview
of the project.
