    (void*) is a novel gathering place that unites the physical and the digital, allowing people and a cast of directable and autonomous characters to interact with each other. The interactions focus on movement, groups, and body language. Building on Swamped! (SIGGRAPH 98), this installation continues the MIT Media Labs’ work in intentional characters, sympathetic interfaces, and autonomous cinematography, and adds “dynamic music composition” as an integral part of the system. It also introduces a number of novel physical interfaces to allow simultaneous multiple participant interaction.
