Art and Tech: AR/VR
Many new technologies have infiltrated the art market in recent years, but none seem so poised to transform it as augmented and virtual reality. The process of buying and selling art, of educating viewers, and the experience of interacting with artwork has been disrupted by VR and AR as this technology enters museums, galleries, auction houses and art fairs.
This one-day course, led by the Founder and CEO of Cuseum, Brendan Ciecko, will address how VR and AR are affecting the art market and viewer engagement, and participants will experience both of these technologies first-hand. In the afternoon, the participants will hear from Sarah Rothberg, the artist behind Apple’s [AR]T Lab and Kate Stevenson from DOTDOT - XR producers from NEW INC.
This course is recommended for those who are interested in learning more about new media and art forms, and the artists that are working with these new technologies.
