Check out the video and project page at Voordekunst. They are in Dutch only, so you may have to use a bit of Google Translate.

How can three dimensional beings, like you and me, explore the virtual landscape of web pages? By rendering the building blocks of a web page in three dimensions, the architecture beneath its surface is revealed. You can read the full article on the V2_ website. This project is produced as part…
