Focus on VR: Virtual space & digital technologies in film
Thursday, March 15th
Focus on VR
To what extent are film and cinema influenced and extended by current digital technologies like 360° Film, Computer Generated Imagery (CGI), 3D Sound, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR)? You are invited by a lab to test, think und discuss. Screenings, workshops and presentations provide insight into current technologies. Filmmakers, artists and members of Austrian universities discuss their attitude with regard to dramaturgy, content and technology.

VRVienna goes Art
Art is one of the foundational aspects of human experience. It materializes dreams, reawakens thoughts that we have taken for granted, and challenges us to defy our very own concept of existence. With the popularization of VR as a new medium to capture reality, how can artists use it to bring their vision to life?

Open Lab / Workshop
Utilizing current 360° media technologies (360° cameras, 3D scanner), the media studios of the St. Pölten UAS provide an insight into conception, production and realization of 360° visuals and sounds. Open labs show present artists working in studio settings und enable participators to create their own 360° scenarios with professional support.

See, experience and get informed
The reasearch project “Wearable Theatre” offers a station at the Forschungsfest Niederösterreich, which provides an insight into the status quo of the experimental research. Basic ideas of “Wearable Theatre” are perpetuated into the audience through the performance “Kugelkopf ext. 4wt: Sub Divo”.
