Press Release:

The six installations in this exhibition were created by artists and technologists with backgrounds in architecture, painting, filmmaking, video art, and software engineering. They have in common their use of technologies developed for the digital entertainment industries. These installations employ video game engines, motion- and position-tracking, stereoscopic (3-D) digital video, and sophisticated image processing software to create simulated worlds that extend, augment, or disrupt the physical environment of the Museum space.

Guided tours: Every Saturday and Sunday at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m., 30 minutes

Real Virtuality has been made possible by generous support from the 2007 Rockefeller Foundation Cultural Innovation Fund and BARCO.
