DESIGNING REALITIES CONFERENCE 3: VR BEYOND PLAY

VIENNA DESIGN WEEK, SUBOTRON

4.10.2018, 6.15pm

What can designers learn from the gaming scene? And where can we find the trans- disciplinary potential of virtual realities? The community of game developers, which enjoys experimentation, has in its 50-year history repeatedly inspired technological and creative innovations. A number of them in virtual and augmented reality were the work of developers who explored and crossed formal and contentual borders in a playful manner. At the same time, the volatile global market has forced designers to be artistically open and economically flexible – cooperation with like-minded individuals in the fields of culture, healthcare, and education has resulted. In this way, the possibilities offered by virtual reality become tangible through play and the circumstances required for further development by those involved are created. Discussion and talk with international and local experts.
