Saturday, 9/11: Altered Festival, A Mixed Reality Adventure
6:00 – 9:30 PM
Altered Festival is aimed at all those who are approaching VR/AR/XR for innovative multi-sensory experiences, exploring our senses with new forms of narration in the virtual world. The way we see, hear, taste, touch, and smell may never be the same again. Altered Festival was born during the 2020 pandemic. The festival seeks this changing context and environment as a challenge and also an opportunity to promote and support cutting-edge artists and developers in our community.
The inaugural 2020 festival featured 13 cutting edge projects that alter our taste, smell, haptic and other senses through VR/AR technology. Exhibited artists are from around the world, including Australia, Finland, Japan and United States. For 2021, Altered Festival continues its mission of bringing multi-sensory VR/AR experiences from artists all over the world to the Ravenswood and rest of Chicago.
