NB: I endeavour to keep these lists up-to-date however the web is a dynamic place. URL's that no longer function are left within this list but do not function as a hyperlink (unless you copy the URL and paste it into your browser). If you resolve any of these links (i.e. find out where that organisation is now) and would care to send me an updated URL, specifying the organisation that the URL is for, it would be most appreciated. If you have an organisation that you would like to see included in any of these VR lists, please send me details of the organisation and an appropriate URL. Address all email to: email@example.com

Char Davies is an artist and Director of Visual Research at Softimage in Montreal. Formerly a painter and filmmaker, she became involved with digital media in the mid-80's. She has been with Softimage since 1987. As Director of Visual Research she leads a team dedicated to pushing the artistically-expressive potential of immersive digital technology.
Debevec is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the UC Berkeley Computer Vision Group. His current projects in Image-Based Modeling and Rendering include Rouen Revisited 1996 and Facade: Modeling and Rendering Architecture from Photographs 1996.
Stewart Dickson is a pioneer in the field of visualizing mathematical objects in three physical dimensions using computer-aided rapid mechanical prototyping technologies, such as Stereolithography. Dickson has been an SGI and Wavefront 3D modeling and animation software user since 1985. He has been an illustrator and computer graphics consultant for Wolfram Research, Inc., creators of the Mathematica(R) system for doing mathematics by computer. Dickson is the proprietor of Mathart.com With Michael Scroggins, Dickson co-created the VR installation A Topological Slide as part of the Art and Virtual Environments Project at the Banff Centre for the Arts.
Scott S. Fisher is a media artist, producer, and director whose work focuses primarily on stereoscopic imaging, immersive "first-person" display environments, and 3D books. Currently he is managing director of Telepresence Research,Inc. , a production company focusing on the art and design of virtual environment and remote presence experiences.
Ulrike Gabriel's work is concerned with the relationship between the body and its conditions. The work realizes interactive space where body and its conditions interpenetrate, where a person's body interfaces within a virtual world as a result of being triggered from data deriving from the body in real-time.
Jenny Holzer uses LCD images in interactive exhibits.
Ricardo Scofidio is a professor at the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at Cooper Union since 1965. Scofidio formed Diller+Scofidio in 1979 with Elizabeth Diller at Princeton Unviersity. Diller+Scofidio is a collaborative team involved in interdisciplinary work that incorporates architecture as well as the performing and visual arts. They look at how media culture privileges unmediated transmissions (live or "real-time" events) and present work that occupies the space between actual and technological time: "live" and prerecorded broadcasts, "real-time" and computer-based imagery.
