Nsider Project

Many of our three-dimensional programs lack a sculptural quality because they end up being designed for one specific view. The Nsider was an attempt by myself and fellow students Jared Shiffman and Casey Reas to create a more sculptural virtual space by creating a multi-perspective screen. The Nsider is a cube shaped screen that simultaneously shows four orthographic views of the application that is running inside. The goal is not to create the illusion of a real three-dimensional object, but instead to show many views at once and allow people to move around the screen to see different views. Some applications even change the format of the presentation depending on the angle of view, letting people visually change their point of view by changing the visual representation.
