SXSW 2017

VR Virgins

VR virgins is a Latin American artistic project of virtual reality. The renowned digital artist Giselle Beiguelman was the curator and invited eight famous artists of different backgrounds (graffiti, music, photography, etc). The only requisite to join was to be "VR virgin": never experienced virtual reality. They participated in a workshop and received a Samsung Gear 360 camera. And then there were 30 days to create their first virtual reality art project. Each process was completely different and the result was astonishing. At SxSw panel Giselle will present the creative process and people will be able to experience the 8 works of art created by VR Virgins.
