CREATING ART IN VIRTUAL REALITY
VR is having a radical impact on how the creation of new works of art can be conceptualised. VR is giving the art scene a new sense of space and dimension, making it more collaborative and more like a game. With the launch in April 2016 of Tilt Brush, an application using a VR headset and motion-tracking controllers as paintbrushes, Google initiated this revolution. It enables users to paint life-size three-dimensional brush strokes in a virtual space, or in a way, to create a sculpture by painting.
VR is transforming art as we know it. VR artists are now creating in a virtual 3D space helping make the process of creation intuitive and natural. It also gives the tool great potential to be used as a platform in museums or galleries to create elaborate art installations like we will be showcasing at the Silk Road Exhibition 14th - 22nd July where artists from London and Penang will be collaborating together to create VR art LIVE, transcending time and borders in this unique creative experience.
VR will no doubt change the way people produce, as well as the skills needed to create, art. But it won’t destroy traditional visual arts - after all, photography didn’t wipe out painting as an art form. Quite the opposite, it will blur the boundaries between real and virtual and provide new avenues for artistic expression until the next radical art-enabling technologies emerge.
SEE OUR PINGHUB VR ARTISTS AT WORK - LIVE
PingHub and Dreamstudio are working together to bring the whole VR experience to the Silk Road Exhibition the July. We will be aiming to link artists to vendors and also link visitors across different time zones to show how east influences west and vice a versa.
We will be using Masterpiece TiltBrush, facilitating VR Artists to collaborate on a live art work, with each artist either taking turns to create or working together simultaneously or a combination of both. Each artist could build on the work of the other before briefly swapping over each 10 mins, creating an unpredictable direction with each change and something that neither artist would have conceptualised on their own.
