Let’s Get Real was the MOR’s first-of-a-kind talk event where we were able to bring two ‘trailblazers’ in a room together to pendulate a new amplitude of understanding VR’s history, and projected future. Our guest speakers Jackie Morie (@skydeas1) and John Orion Young (@JohnOrionYoung) were able to engage those in attendance with far-reaching, infinity-pool immersed perspectives from both their real and virtual investments in art-making.
Nick Ladd is a Canadian artist with a background in illustration and 3D animation. As a VR artist, he created the learning resource, Animbrush Academy, and co-founded Studio Syro, an animation studio using the VR painting tool 'Quill' to produce hand-crafted experiences.
Sabby Lighf is a VR Artist and Live Performer whose artistic quest in traditional painting turned into self-seeking in virtual reality. Her VR tale begins sometime in 2018, a little after she saw a Tilt Brush commercial which led her to start exploring painting in a new medium.
The Fabric of Reality event sure expanded the record of MOR-friendly purposes. We were lucky to host some pioneers from fashion-tech and observe a newfangled ruffling of immersive narrative devices, in pursuit of virtual apparel. We got in touch with the fashion designers and their XR counterparts for a debrief, greedy to gain deeper insight about their collaborations of course.
