Working In Virtual Realities Workshop

Greg Ferris will present and discuss his recent virtual reality work Only at the Air, Only at Each Other (Sydney Film Festival, Revelation Perth International Film Festival) and the processes that informed its creation, both aesthetic and technological. Greg will then examine the nature of AR (augmented reality), MR (mixed reality) and VR as mediums, their antecedents, and the ways in which these ‘hot’ formats are affecting practices of filmmaking, curation and exhibition. In addition, he will examine emerging technologies and ways in which contemporary moving image artists and filmmakers can mobilise VR within their own practices across a range of genres.
