Les Rencontres du Virtuel
This year, VR Arles Festival is launching Rencontres du Virtuel, a day of conferences and discussions on the subject of virtual-reality creation. During the opening week of Rencontres d’Arles, artists, exhibition curators, and researchers will address the thriving intersection between virtual imagery and contemporary photographic creation.
Throughout its rich history, photography has always been linked to technological innovation. With the latest developments in 3D modeling and photogrammetry, photography contributes to the creation of worlds, experiences, and spaces, resulting in new forms of expression.
