Virtual Reality and immersive experiences are ushering in a new era in the world of art. In combining traditional art forms and cutting-edge innovations, artists can fashion all-new experiences for art enthusiasts. Not only that, but the marriage of art and technology will draw in new audiences from all over the world.
TIME has the world’s largest circulation for a weekly news magazine. For the release of the HTC Vive headset, TIME introduced seven artists to Google’s Tilt Brush, a virtual reality program that lets users create art in three dimensions using the HTC Vive headset. Using a powerful computer, two controllers and two cameras set up in opposite corners of the room, the artists’ movements were tracked to create the virtual drawings.
