The MOR had the pleasure of meeting with the creators behind the four stunning experiences that were exhibited as Volume One of the Immerse Arcade: The Showcase. In case you missed it, we’ve put together everything we learnt from the artistic directors and immersive studios behind The Invisible, Notes on Blindness, Fly and Common Ground.
To start off 2021, we invited sound designers Em Halberstadt and Millie Wissar from ‘A Shell in the Pit’ to pick apart and unpeel the many layers of sound in VR. Here’s a wholesome revisit, or call them closely-taken notes, on the aspects of sound that our guest speakers unblurred.
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.
