In a constant search for new modes of artistic exploration and human connection, PHI pushes the boundaries of its established environment, offering a new dimension within a virtual space. PHI Virtual replaces the physical space of the PHI Centre with a dreamlike alternate universe, where nature takes back its rights and the codes of reality fall apart. The visitor is invited to participate in the conversation within the intangible environments of the interface. The opening of this new VR ecosystem is an opportunity for PHI to offer the public surreal experiences and cultural events, as well as discussions and artistic collaborations, via a series of exclusive free events.
Uncharted Territory Is the Norm
Inaugurating the PHI Virtual program, a roundtable will be held on April 20th, 2020 at 2 PM, in a surreal PHI Centre, bringing together key players from the world of extended reality (XR). To discuss contemporary issues in the field and future generations of XR, each participant, equipped with a VR headset, will appear in avatar form on a fictional stage within this fantasy atmosphere, inspired both by nature and oneiric driftings.
Myriam Achard, Chief, New Media Partnerships and Public Relations at the Phi Centre, will lead the discussion in this virtual world.
