How do we engage with VR and VR art? How is your heart beating during the art experience? This Friday you can help to find answers to those questions. Take your friends and grab the opportunity of a free VR art experience in Bristol!
Technology is developing super-fast but we still know very little about how we engage with art that involves technology. No matter if you are new to Virtual Reality or are an experienced audience member – please come, enjoy and... help us to learn more about engagement with art and VR art.
My name is Agnieszka Wlazel, and I am a PhD researcher at the University of Leeds. I have always been interested in audience engagement with art, so I took this challenge to explore those complicated conscious and unconscious processes. I am studying audience reactions to VR art through (short) pre- and post-experience questionnaires and by collecting and analysing audience members’ physiological reactions e.g. heart beats. During art experience I will gathering the data through a wearable device (smart watch and a ring) that offers real-time physiological data collection .The recordings are made in an entirely non-invasive, non-intrusive manner by the wrist or fingers, and the data will be stored on secure password protected server by anonymous code.
Come, experience VR art and help future art and VR projects be mindful of their audiences!

Step to the Line
Shot entirely on location in a California maximum security prison, Step to the Line is a documentary that aims to provoke a transformation in the spectator’s eyes about prisoners, the US prison system, and the spectator themselves. Step to the Line is a story of the consequences of systematic racial inequality and an exploration of the ways lives are changed when someone serves time in prison.
