Virtual Museum of Contemporary Photography
Ahad Yari Rad, is a PhD student in Fine Arts, at the University of Rennes 2. His research subject concerns the Esthetic of Virtual Reality. He is performing the practical part of his PhD in the SIAMES's Project. He is currently developing a Virtual Museum of Contemporary Photography. This museum offers to the user the ability to navigate and interact with couples of photographs. By its own body movements and right arm gestures, the user has the ability to zoom in and out, to pan left and right and to step-by-step erase one photograph to make the second one appear (cf left picture of the figure 36 ).
