Virtual Reality Symposia: Virtual Reality is a sublime technology, both beautiful and frightful in equal measure. It has re-emerged as the medium at the forefront of digital technology and with it comes a great deal of promise, hope and hype. In its current iteration the technology is scalable, accessible, affordable and it works. So what is being done with Virtual Reality, what are the implications and potentials for the fields of Art and Design? In this series of four symposia, we will bring together panels of practitioners, educators and students to share practices, knowledge and to promote a critical dialogue around our hopes and fears for Virtual Reality. We will discuss this through themed sessions to explore; Virtual Histories, Virtual Economies, Virtual Bodies and Virtual Space.
