What is VR in Visual Arts?
Visual artists use their chosen medium to critically reflect upon and discuss today’s society or individual living conditions, or to scrutinize and question the possibilities or limits of the medium itself. They go beyond the creative possibilities of the medium and deal critically with their surroundings to include their thoughts and conclusions within their artwork.
Which artists participate?
Banz & Bowinkel, Evelyn Bencicova and Arielle Esther and Joris Demnard (Ikonospace), Patricia Detmering, Sandrine Deumier, Mona El Gammal, Séamus Gallagher, Olivia McGilchrist, Mohsen Hazrati, Bianca Kennedy, Armin Keplinger, Francois Knoetze and Amy Wilson, Jakob Kudsk Steensen, Erin Ko and Jamie Martinez, Lauren Moffatt, OLEK, Ora Ruven, Johanna Strobel, The Swan Collective, Hana Yoo, Matteo Zamagni
More about the Radiance VR App and its founders
In April 2021, Philip Hausmeier and Tina Sauerlaender, co-founders of Radiance VR (2017), launched the Radiance VR App. After two successful collaborations with the VR ART PRIZE, and Gazelli Art House, the application now presents an exclusive selection of the latest and most inspiring VR art experiences for rent. Tina Sauerlaender on the App: “We are very happy and proud to finally launch the Radiance VR App which is an outstanding selection of 22 VR artworks by 22 artists from 14 countries. More will be added every month. Our app provides a new business model for VR art. Users can rent VR artworks for a small amount of money for 48 hours to stream or download the work and watch it with their Oculus Quest headset. We apply a model from the film industry to VR art to enable artists to earn revenues from their VR artworks that are expensive to produce. We aim for a sustainable sales model for VR art for the future that renders VR art visible and accessible to a large audience.”
