VR in Visual Arts
Contributed by Lexi Henrion in Spring 2023
Virtual Reality (VR) has the potential to revolutionize visual art by providing a real experience of depth that is not possible with flat reference images. Moreover, it is unlikely that an artist will always have a perfect physical reference nearby. I designed VRStudio to be a VR drawing space to study and learn form - any form you can find a 3D model of on the internet! I conducted an in-class activity where my classmates tried out this VR app that I designed, VRStudio.

Art is like learning to translate a language - It shouldn't be exact.
