Spheres, 2020-ongoing

VR experience for HTC Vive or Oculus Rift

In this virtual reality you find yourself in a space of numerous spheres, each consisting of different sounds, colors and creatures. You can stay as much as you want or you can move into another sphere. The path is determined only by your choice. But you can never go back or break out of the sphere. Your last point will be the starting point for the next person to enter. All the objects, sounds and textures used in the work are from open source sites. Spheres have a cubemap material, a special type of texture used in computer graphics. The environment is projected onto six faces of the cube and stored; then it could be applied to a spherical model and when you are inside you have the illusion of being in infinite open space.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Daryna Fes (1992) is an independent artist working primarily with interactive VR. She is interested in discovering a potential of the technology as a separate form of art. Main themes of her projects are differences and similarities between physical and digital worlds, ways of transition from one world to another and our [un]awareness of it, concepts of infiniteness and limits, perception of the human body and emotions. She is using game engines (Unity and UE4) to program environments that react to viewer’s presence. Models and sounds in her works are usually generated or downloaded from the internet. Daryna resides in Kyiv, Ukraine.
