Immersive Fields is the title of a program with 360° art works and immersive research presented during the Ars Electronica 2020. Most of the pieces were produced and developed at the Fulldome / VR & AR Lab based at the Department of DIGITAL ARTS / Ruth Schnell. The dome installed at Ars Electronica was provided by the University of Applied Arts Vienna as part of a cooperation between Angewandte and Johannes Kepler University Linz.
The 13 presented works range from abstract animations, and experimental films to interactive installations. They represent a range of artistic approaches and strategies, where the unique properties of the medium fulldome – an audio-visual and social environment, in which visitors are not subject to a single point of view – are considered the starting place for creation. The notion of virtual reality is here exploited in a variety of critical ways and reinterpreted from an arts-based research prospect, aiming to embody future lines of development in the field of immersive media art.
The program presentation is part of TRANSFORM, a collaboration between the Angewandte, Vienna, Johannes Kepler University Linz, and Danube University Krems. The Fulldome infrastructure is realized within SAVATAP, the cooperative project between the Angewandte, the University of Vienna and the Austrian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence, both of which are funded by the bmbwf.
