Join media artist Rebecca Allen and interactive media pioneer Scott Fisher for a conversation about the artistic potential of virtual environments and realities. Formerly within the reach of only large labs serving research and industry, virtual-reality technology is now available to individuals with the advent of small, inexpensive development kits. Beyond the immediate entertainment applications associated with these new devices, what can they offer artists?
Rebecca Allen is a media artist and professor and founding chair of the UCLA Department of Design Media Arts. Scott Fisher is professor and founding chair of the Interactive Media Division and associate dean of research at the USC School of Cinematic Arts.
