Call for VR productions for the Vektor VR 2023 program taking place in the frame of the 20th Verzió

The boundaries between the realm of Virtual Reality (VR) and the real world are gradually converging, merging with our reality and blurring our perception. This fusion challenges our understanding of what is real. Furthermore, we are becoming increasingly attuned to detecting imperceptible occurrences, enabling us to create fresh interpretations and meanings. Beside these new forms of perception, we are also more open to comprehend hidden actions and events by defining and naming them, such as the notion of "invisible work" or acknowledging the presence of beings beyond human.

For Vektor VR 2023, we invite VR creators to submit their work that delves deeper into our senses, methods of comprehension, and modes of interaction, aiming to uncover novel ways of encountering and embodying the "other."

Key dates:

Deadline for submission: 28 August, 2023
