For my Digital Artefact I have been researching the future of our experiences and interaction with Art through the emergence of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality technologies. To learn more about my Digital Artefact, click here to view my Pitch on the topic.
For my DA I am creating 3 blog post that will focus on various elements of the use of VR and AR in the experience of the Art industry.
The 1st Blog post can be viewed here: I discuss how the industry are currently implementing AR and VR technologies to create new experiences and unique interactions.
The 2nd Blog Post can be viewed here: in this blog post, I researched the advantages and disadvantages of these technologies being implemented within the industry.
As stated in my BETA, I have been able to keep on track of my schedule, but will need to improve on creating engagement and feedback for my posts which I could implement into my final blog post.
Further Background Research
For the 3rd blog post, I have begun to conduct my research and was interested by an article by ‘The Art Newspaper’ , that suggested there could be the potential for artist to curate their own gallery and exhibit experiences that would allow them to showcase their work where individuals could interact, personalise and share. There could even be the possibility of technology curating art that appeals to each individual and providing a VR experience showcasing them a gallery or exhibit of their favoured Art.
Once I have completed my research, I will gather my prior information to evaluate and reflect in order to support my thoughts, possibilities and predictions of the mid to far future of our changed experiences and interactions with art through the implementation of VR and AR technology in the industry.
According to Istvan Csicsery-Ronay book ‘The Seven Beautifies of Science Fiction’ he discusses how predictions of the future must be based on the present and the past explaining the future as a mere continuation of the past, the two are not mutually exclusive. I will be utilising this source in order to justify why my predictions are plausible.
