The collaborative group VITAL SIGNS, composed of artists and computer programmers at the University of California, San Diego, created a computer-generated virtual reality environment using video projections that combined the real with the virtual. An effort to understand and investigate the then new virtual technology and its impact of the real gave rise to the group's project for inSITE94, titled "APPARITIONS." Within the created environment of "APPARITIONS" one could interact on screen under an assumed identity with other participants who had entered the created world. VITAL SIGNS members for inSITE94 included Sheldon Brown, Kelly Coyne, Cheryl Devereaux, Jason Ditmars, Brian Duggan, Christa Erickson, Dorota Jakubowski, Tim Nohe, Eric Riel, Mark Tribe, Niklas Vollmer and Payton White.
