Virtualities: Lecture by Luis Rodil-Fernández

Metamedia Lab, News

During the speculative design workshop under the title Telling the Time, artist Luis Rodil-Fernández gave a guest lecture about virtual reality technologies and its implications of time perception. The lecture was held in the living room of Karlo Rojc Community Center on Wednesday, 14th August 2019.




”The notion of time is intertwined with the notion of space, a transformation of how we perceive one automatically shifts our perception of the other. Virtual Realities open up these dimensions of human perception to infinite reinterpretations and as our perception is increasingly reliant on data, our notions of time and place are less and less reliant on the senses. This talk explores the different scales of perception of these virtual realities and questions the role of technology in its role of mediating our reality beyond the senses.” (Luis Rodil-Fernández)
