One of our earliest works from way back in 1995 is being emulated online for the first time, thanks to bwFLA at University of Freiburg, where they have been developing a system for hosting virtual machines that can be shared online.

The work is called Thalamus -a simple user led environment that uses a metronome scale as a tuning device allowing anyone using it to unfold a past life regression experienced by a man under hypnosis. If you want to go and use the work and find out more about it then you can access it here:

Please be patient because the emulation takes at least a minute to start up. The (rather brilliant and flexible) emulation platform is also in beta, so expect it to evolve and improve over time and sometimes to be offline for development and maintenance.  The system doesn't work with Safari but is compatible with Mozilla browsers and Chrome.

Thalamus was originally commissioned to be part of a CDROM project called The Toybox and was shown at Tate Liverpool as part of Video Positive '95.
