Since inception in 2017, ARS has engaged with 3 artists, Keith Tolch, Joe Sola, and Victoria Fu. Keith Tolch worked on IVR_1. Over a 15 month period Keith taught himself how to use ARS provided equipment and software to create a collectable virtual reality program titled bury the ground (Edition of 5), and 6 paintings. Keith’s paintings were informed by his VR work, and his VR work was informed by his paintings. Keith commented that VR technology essentially allowed him to explore the space behind or beyond his paintings - his “glass bottom brain”.
Joe Sola worked on IVR_2. Joe created a collectable virtual reality program titled Changing Room (Edition of 3) and 11 pigment prints. Joe commented that while working in VR space, he was immediately struck by how the form, the virtual world, most clearly mirrored how his imagination worked.
Victoria Fu is working on IVR_3. Victoria is in the early stages of familiarizing herself with ARS provided equipment and software. Victoria commented that working with that equipment is a “game changer”.
