The concept of virtual reality and its technology have been expanding and intensifying in recent years. How will this profound intensification influence our notions of space and time?
Following sudden technological changes, we are forced to face radically new "reality." But exactly what and how has it changed? How will this transformed reality influence our value system? Moreover, how will the expression and the content of art transform? What will these new modes be, if they are produced? We will discuss these issues with international artists and scholars studying and thematizing the transformations of reality and virtuality.
