Immer Space Presents: Un|Seen by Tiffany Trenda
Un/Seen is a live performance on a social VR immersive web domain and is built on the Immers.Space webXR platform. The public can login and interact with Tiffany Trenda in real time while she is broadcasting live from her studio (using volumetric capture). During the performance, the artist reacts to guest conversations, emojis, and chats. Guests can select from a group of custom avatars to embody in the VR space. The work is a hybrid of holographic, physical, and animation.With new mixed reality experiences, we become disembodied. That is, we are physically in one space while our eyes and thoughts are experiencing another world simultaneously. Our bodies become dissociated as we shift between the simulated and the real. Furthermore, we are not immediately within the presence of another. Our presence is mediated and transported into another space that doesn't actually exist. We are in essence, seen and unseen.Un/Seen is a collaboration with artist Tiffany Trenda, dulce303, and composer Joseph Bishara. It was a commissioned curatorial project by DIVERSEartLA.
