In the course of WALKIE TALKIE (a collaborative art crawl by Aa Collections, Improper Walls, Artivive, Hollerei & sound:frame) Eva Fischer hosted the panel discussion “Virtual and Augmented Reality as an artistic medium and a tool for communication”. Together with Gabriella Chihan Stanley (XR Vienna, VRISCH), Franziska Bruckner (Fh St. Pölten – Department Media & Digital Technologies) and Gregor Ladenhauf (Depart – “The Lacuna Shifts” VR Experience) she discussed whether Virtual Reality can be seen as the new tool for digital artistic approaches, the creation of immersive experiences and thus also a new medium of communication.
Listen to the recording here:
How does storytelling change through a new immersive medium like VR?
Did VR change your worldview as an artist?
As a communication manager in the XR field – why is this medium so interesting for you?
VR has been often described as the “empathy machine” which allows the audience to take a foreign perspective, to maybe even experience another person’s story. Would you agree?
What would you reccommend somebody who wants to start producing content in VR.
Which XR experiences are a MUST watch?
Which networks and platforms are the best to meet people?
How will the future look like?
How will XR change our communication – as artists, as entrepreneurs, as people?
