Beyond The Canvas - Bliss, 2020, ongoing

VR experience for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift

In the present day, technology influences human perception and therefore our reality. Beyond the Canvas-Bliss deals with the question of how the classical categories of visual art deals with technological progress and the associated changes in perception. Do classic art forms such as painting, photography and sculpture already belong to the past, and if so, doesn’t it make these art forms superfluous? In Beyond the Canvas-Bliss, digital technology is combined with analogue painting and the supposed boundaries between the analogue and digital world are dissolved by the empirical perception of the viewer. The experience of entering a work of art and moving in it is intended to evoke a new perception of reality. This is a real time and room scale vr artwork.




*1984 Berlin, Germany

Tonio Mundry's artistic work explores the everyday aesthetic world of computer graphics and combines it with the classic medium of painting and sculpture. The concept of reality in connection with digital media and its influence on our society are questioned by his projects. His exhibitions reflect this controversy between the analogue and the digital, but the artist sees his work as a bridge that connects both worlds. Since 2014 the artist has been using the medium of virtual reality to make this connection visible to others.
