ABOUT THE SESSION
Discover how artists and art organizations are integrating virtual reality (VR) into their existing practices to plan, create, enhance, exhibit and archive their works. Through 360 video, allow your audiences to attend or relive your performances as if they were in the auditorium. Reach a global audience by holding your live events in virtual reality chat rooms. Pre-visualize your sculpture, installation, or architecture by using 6-DOF VR to get a sense of scale and timing before production. Join Vincent McCurley as he explores the use of VR as a tool enabling non-technical artists to create immersive experiences.
