Because the world as we know it is quite often dominated by visual information, most human beings have learned to extract and interpolate data efficiently from what they perceive optically. With the advent of new technologies, however, humans are now presented with challenges of viewing the world in many ways previously deemed conventionally impossible. The ultimate purpose of this thesis is to explore the possibilities of multiple virtual “cameras” placed in hypothetical space (virtual space that mimics actual space, with three dimensional axis of translation) from a single point of origin, their integration in coordinate space, and the possibility of this unique output as an effective new form of visual communication. Quite simply, the integration of multidirectional, camera-centric rigs in coordinate space presents an interesting facet of three-dimensional space that has yet to be fully realized. This thesis project, including video and imagery of the final project as well as a digital copy of this paper, is available for viewing at http://www.brendanbond.com/thesis/index.html .
