REALITIES IN TRANSITION: OPEN CALL FOR XR ARTISTIC PROJECTS, DEADLINE [1/12/2022]Marilena Pateraki
Realities in Transition is calling for creative XR projects that reimagine and expand the notions of XR while following a critical, reflective line of thought and promoting a common, open, sustainable XR at a European level. Seven projects will be invited to take part in a residency program at V2_ Lab in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
How we experience digital content is changing rapidly with the emergence of extended reality, or XR. XR brings together virtual, augmented and mixed reality to create a blended reality in which data seamlessly mingles with the physical environment. The impact of this new integrated world is becoming evident across society in domains such as education, health care, industry and culture. Inevitably, the opportunities XR presents also introduce critical issues relating to sustainability, ethics, data privacy, and unequal access to technology, to name a few examples. XR tools offer creatives and artists compelling possibilities for building upon and challenging existing modes of content creation and storytelling while helping to develop original methodologies for producing new artistic media.
