Developed for the "Cave" @ Ars Electronica Center, Linz, Austria, where it is now part of their VR collection. A spectator can walk around merely studying the unfolding scenes, or act upon it by grabbing or throwing the virtual characters. The stereoscopic "real" 3D quality of the characters makes one feel like one is sharing the same space with them. The behavior of the characters is dark, even grim, though towards the end, they seem to exude some sense of peace and weightlessness.
Karma is incidentally the name of the physics simulator used in many computer games to create a realistic sense of gravity and kinetic forces.
