Virtual experiences by vnLab at the Patchlab Festival in Krakow
As part of the Patchlab Digital Art Festival, viewers will be able to enjoy two VR experiences created by the VR/AR Studio at the main exhibition. The theme of this year’s event is SPACE/S, or space and its different variations.
- From October 19 to 22 in the creative district of Weso?a, the following will be available to Patchlab audiences:
VR Cave | Jowita Guja, Adam ??d?o, Duration: 10-15?
The Cave is an interactive adaptation of Plato’s metaphor, preserving the meaning of the original, but setting it in a new context. The creators transfer the philosophical text to VR and present an experience that requires not only mental but also physical effort to emphasize the experiential nature of the philosophy.
Pilot 9/11 VR | Norman Leto, Duration: 20?
The experience depicts the events of September 11, 2001 from the unique perspective of military aviators who followed the hijacked passenger planes to prevent the tragedy. “Pilot 9/11” is a 20-minute story about recovery from trauma – both the broader, national one and the subjective, personal one.
