The Unframed World. Virtual Reality as artistic medium for the 21st century.

HeK (House of Electronic Arts Basel)

19 Jan 201705 Mar 2017

With the market launch of technologies suitable for the masses, Virtual Reality experiences a first time large-scale popularity as artistic medium. By means of a headset, the viewer enters a three-dimensional world devoid of the limiting edges of a screen, projection sheet or room. “The Unframed World” is the first extensive presentation of artistic exploration of the VR medium at the HeK (House of Electronic Arts Basel). The international group exhibit shows works, which bind the virtual environment together with the physical exhibition space.
