Virtual Reality

The design, as well as the technical and visual qualities of VR works are exponentially improving year by year. There are linear 360° films which we present in a VR cinema in four curated programme blocks, and six interactive experiences that will be presented as installations in the VR Zone at the DKO. Generally, the relationship of the VR experiences to the physical world is being significantly broadened by the use of elements of stage design or live action. In the Re-Animated installation, you will get a chance to walk on tree bark to experience forest on a very physical level. A prominent trend among the latest VR works is the focus on an analysis of artworks or artistic styles and their frequent motives include landscapes and ecosystems.

Das Totale Tanz Theater
This sophisticated tribute to the influential artistic movement known as Bauhaus realizes the stage experiments of Oskar Schlemmer and Walter Gropius in ways that have never been possible before. Using a Richard Siegal choreography during which the audience is free to come close to the dancers, this work explores the structured quality and the possibility to influence space while every element of the dance, musical, costumes, stage design and sound design is a reference to the Bauhaus style.

Diagnóza: Environmentální žal
If our planet warms up 2 degrees Celsius, it will no longer be compatible with the contemporary human civilization. Each student of the Intermedia Studio at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Brno University of Technology, while traveling in Kazakhstan, where the effects of global changes are becoming apparent, invents their own therapy, which should be a solution to this environmental grief. Other classmates pretend this specific diagnosis and collaborate on 'curing it'. Just as the planet is warming up and heading to an irreversible point, the group is heading to an increasingly hostile and incompatible environment with our civilization.

Nothing to be Written
The soldiers in the trenches of World War I were able to send postcards home but all they were allowed to write on them was their signature. All communication took place using a set of approved phrases. The unique style of drawings inspired by the messages on these postcards also show the circumstances  in which they were written and received.

Re-animated
This work is inspired by the last kauaʻi ʻōʻō bird whose species became extinct in 1987. To create this animated world, the author programmed images of real animals and plants to colonize an island and create a unique ecosystem to which end he used simulation models predicting the future climatic scenarios. The plants, moss and insects react to the pulse of real-time generated music and the breathing and the voices of the audience influence the virtual atmosphere. The result is a unique VR experience for every user.
