Recognizing Artists

Art&VR Gallery

The Art&VR Gallery presents an international selection of Artworks curated by VR/MR Artist and Researcher Judith Guez.

Illusions, between surprise and wonder, destabilize and amuse. They interrogate our perceptions of our daily reality. It is between real illusion and virtual illusions, through immersion and interaction, that we want to explore new artistic forms that can question our perceptual habits, and make us tip over another conception of the world.

The desired proposals, in the form of an installation between the real and the virtual, could for example: question the effects of the hybridization between the real and the virtual ; be inspired by real illusions and/or the creation of illusions specific to the virtual ; Explore the effects of multisensory illusions related to immersion and interaction in a virtual/mixed world ; offer moments of digital magic ; etc

Laval Virtual is the largest event dedicated to VR/AR & Immersive Techniques and will be held from 20 still 24 March 2019. Benefit of a full-access pass, and Laval Virtual's professional effervescence around art, digital and scientific innovation.

In a brief moment, they will have to maintain a skin-on-skin contact to animate the rope that is the metaphor of this union and which behavior changes according to every single movement of the couple. When one of the gong is hit, a thought expressed by a user of the social network Twitter is freed
