    Art Dirt: Is Virtual Reality the Future of Art?

    27/09/2020 Duração: 44min

    Christina Rees and Brandon Zech discuss the art world's (still nascent) use of virtual and augmented reality, how VR undercuts traditional art experiences, and its real potential in the hands of artists.  "For somebody who has so many doubts about where the digital revolution is taking us, I'm actually quite excited about virtual reality in art, because I do think that artists will continue to push the boundaries of what it can be ... I do think a lot of artists are capable of doing something that we haven't imagined yet." If you enjoy Glasstire and would like to support our work, please consider donating.
