Midwest Immersive presents New Media Artist, DreamBait
About The Speaker:
DreamBait is the audio/visual/virtual output of Vincent Naples, a Chicago based New Media Artist and Producer working with sound, light, interactive design, 3D projection and immersive environments. Their work explores improvisatory dynamics in time, 2-and-3-dimensional space, and Virtual Reality as an extension of the artist.
This talk is given from the perspective of an artist approaching the technology of a VR space, searching for tools, networks, technicians and a workflow for creating within AR, VR, and interactive multimedia environments.
Art happens at the point of experience, and as we all explore the nascent technology of virtual reality, Vincent Theodore Naples will share his own findings and talk through the process and obstacles of discovery, curation and execution of a VR gallery exhibition, Post Chroma.
