FOCUS VIRTUAL

may 2020

In the present, increasingly built on virtual reality, augmented reality, reality shows and fake news, a reflection dedicated to virtual reality could not miss. How much does the immersive experience, now increasingly rampant, allow us to deepen our reality or is it reduced to a simple act of gamification?

Some studies argue that virtual reality can be interpreted as a machine of empathy capable of making us experience different and difficult situations. Is there a difference between policemen who wear VR to imagine themselves as criminals and spectators who virtually experience the violence suffered by migrants? Is there a precise boundary between reality and fiction?

 

These, the shows of FOCUS VIRTUAL.
