We’ve collaborated with Susan Kozel for an article in Transformations Journal. ‘The Weird Giggle’ can be read online here. Within the poetic digital space of Virtual Reality philosophical and cultural narratives collide. Do artistic experiments in VR provide the ultimate freedom for our development as a species or plunge it into passive reception of pure violence?
Artist Talk 16th May 2017
We are presenting at the Collusion VR/AR lab. This lab will take a practical and theoretical approach, framed within a peer-to-peer environment. There will be taught sessions covering Unity software, HTC Vive, HoloLens, 360 video, use of sound and project workflow. This will be balanced with theoretical talks on virtual, augmented and mixed reality by artists and our industry partners
The programme is run by Cambridge-based Collusion, which works at the intersection of arts, technology and human interaction.

We’ve contributed a chapter to this great book..
‘You have the artistic talent, but do you know how to make a success of it? The thing they don’t teach you in art school is just how active and engaged you need to be; you’ll have to become your own finance, business and marketing manager, as well as a researcher, curator and administrator.

With hardware and software and becoming more affordable and easier to use, VR is once again capturing the imagination of artists. It is both a tool and environment potentially offering a wide range of experiences not just for one body but also for a collective. The potential for empathy, dislocation and shared sensory experience is rich for artistic work but the technology tends to be directed towards the consumer electronics market and ever more ‘intimate’ and targeted advertising.

Here’s a review of the talk we did at Artful Spark at the Barbican. Artful Spark is a quarterly event about cross discipline collaboration and boundary defying work that brings together commissioners, coders, producers, game designers and artists to explore the possibilities presented by emerging technology.
We are pleased to announce that we are artists-in-residence at www.gazell.io for October.
During the artistic process a plethora of images are produced -often unused in the finished product and thus never reaching the public domain. These experimental images are part of the technical exploration process, provoking new pathways to visualisations – by-products of research, they can signify significant leaps of invention and potential thinking.
