Claire Brunet: Trans: duRéel auVirtuel

Project description:  When spatial platforms become a means to investigate technological advances, allowing for more intimate or immersive interactions with objects in space, my focus shift from real to virtual spaces.

Trans: duRéel auVirtuel is a virtual reality (VR) experience that explores the concept of identity through diverse artistic mediums inside of an immersive environment. A sense of self is conveyed throughout the experience, underlining the present time, when technological developments broaden the notion of identity. The project builds on different approaches to 3D scanning technology—both indoors and outdoors—including body digitizing, to create figurative sculptural forms that are experienced by the viewer as objects of introspection in virtual space.

This project engages artistically with objects and space within immersive environments allowing for an enhanced phenomenological approach to forming the viewer’s experience. Furthermore, it brings artistic perspectives to interactive platforms conventionally developed for gaming. Inspired by a transition from the tangible object to its digitized form, my research aims at investigating different ways to creatively engage with virtual environments.
