2017 has been an amazing year for VR. The 3D holographic display has been used in some incredible exhibitions that shifted viewer perception and showed the world how extraordinary living amongst holographic imagery could be.
The Illinois Museum houses holographic Holocaust survivors at which an audience is able to talk to holograms of Holocaust survivors. Its main purpose is to preserve age-old traditions through a new way of storytelling even after the individuals have passed. Imagine being able to interact and learn about world history from actual people who have lived and passed on. Even better, imagine this way of learning becoming the norm in educational institutions all over the world.
Anne Vieux’s show entitled Mesh in London explores “optics of the computer screen and the implications of light on abstraction, through digital reproductions of material surfaces”. Using the logic of 3D modelling software she makes the physical and digital indistinguishable, showing the audience what it might look like to live among holograms at this scale in everyday life.
Transcending Boundaries, an exhibition held at Pace London, showcased an immersive environment that questioned the role of technology and how we can interact with the digital world in a physical space. A digital waterfall falls from ceiling down the walls and onto the floor. When a person stands within it he/she obstructs the flow and changes the behaviour of the waterfall, through touch video wall technology.
The works above has shown how much progress we’ve made in VR and there’s so much left to explore. To start your journey with hologram display technology, contact us today!
