Globe Theatre Simulation

In 1989, the team rebuilding Shakespeare's Globe Theatre approached the Apple Multimedia Lab asking if it would be possible to create a "Be-in-a-Shakespeare-Play" immersive experience. We produced a videotape simulation of what a first-person experience and a third-person experience might be like. These two different points of view could be seen by different people simultaneously.
