Installation at SIGGRAPH 2001

Howling into a microphone makes your pup howl, and helps other wolves find you.

The AlphaWolf project premiered in the Emerging Technologies section of SIGGRAPH 2001. The installation features a pack of virtual wolves who form social relationships with each other. Three people interact with the virtual pack at the same time, each playing the role of one wolf pup in a new litter. Participants direct their pups with a microphone (into which they howl, growl, whine or bark to affect how their pups interact with their packmates) and a mouse (to tell their pups where to go).
