UNCANNY explores 3D virtual environments where the dialectic relation between the viewer and the image creates immersive experiences that oscillate between real and virtual space. As Lev Manovich states, “the visual language in our modern period is characterized by the existence of another virtual space, another three-dimensional world enclosed by a frame and situated inside our normal space”. Through the work of five artistic approaches involving worlds of futuristic fiction, UNCANNY progressively takes us from the idea of visual environments to the physical sensorial experience of them – in Manovich’s words, from the screen to screenless.As part of the exhibition programming for UNCANNY
Alfredo Salazar-Caro will be teaching a workshop at REVERSE, Intro to VR and Video Games, on Saturday, September 26th & Sunday, September 27th.
