SILENCE | SATIRE – On Visual Culture: Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality    

Date: 05 & 06.06.2019
Location: Ca Phe Thu Bay Tre, Ho Chi Minh City

In June 2019, Sàn Art delivers the second edition of Uncommon Pursuits, this time, as a workshop centered on the intersection between visual art curation and theatrical production through hands-on theater-making exercises and intensive discussions about the performative body, sound, space, and time.

The workshop instructors come from a wide range of visual and performative disciplines, including theater and film studies, physical theater, Noh acting, new media, theater design and theater production. Through the process of presenting and making together, the insights and skills transferred to the workshop are reflected upon, contested, refined and integrated into each participant’s project. The class learn how lessons on staging, moving, directing, synergizing and carrying a production to its fruition could enhance each participant’s personal strategies as they embark on various uncommon pursuits, whether in the field of performance or visual art, whether as curators, producers, actors, visual artists, writers or art viewers.

The session offers an overview of recent developments in augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) applications, such as AR and VR devices in entertainment, education, heath and contemporary art. The presentation also walks through the practices of artists who have used AR and VR in their works, such as Anish Kapoor and Marina Abramovic, and the phenomenon of projection mapping in recent public art projects. The semiotic framework is revisited as the class discusses contemporary technology, society and art.
