Fly-through extract.

The House of Osama bin Laden is a trilogy of artworks in the form of an interactive multi media installation made by the artists following a research visit to Afghanistan in October 2002. The central art work, which gives the trilogy it's title, digitally recreates a house formerly occupied by bin Laden, as a basis for an exploration of the aftermath of September 11 and the western intervention in Afghanistan.
