Digital Animation – Isaac Benjamin Ng Chun Yi
The history of art has recently been filled with new technologies that are taking on the mantle of aesthetic representation. While games and interactive media has always been fascinating to me as they encourage and promote the concept of play and personal involvement, leading to greater forms of narrative and experiential storytelling; it is the recent coming and rise of the Virtual Reality (VR) concept that has grabbed my attention.
This project is an exploration of this new medium, asking some very simple questions; is it possible to elicit new forms of emotion when you immerse yourself in a fully 3D space? What sort of new effects and ideas may come from it? What is augmented, and what is fully changed?
