Virtual Reality: Ways of seeing [working title]
Issue 38:4 | December 2018 Guest editor: Julianne Pierce
Recently the world of Virtual Reality (VR) has become accessible and affordable with artists taking interest in the potential of immersive and multi-layered spaces. Is it a medium that will truly transport viewers into the depths and nuances of a new way of seeing, as an enhanced or altered view of reality? Can VR be a positively disruptive force for change?
What challenges and new opportunities does it offer the cultural producer in the creation of speculative world-building? And how does the medium also facilitate opening up collaborative and connective spaces for audiences in museums and galleries and those accessing collections virtually?
Proposals are welcome that address these and other issues as ways of “seeing” and viewing the world through VR.
