Experimental Realities: An Inquiry is based on the principle that 13 minds are better than 1 or 2. From July 7-10, 2023, IDA will bring together a diverse group of researchers, artists, curators, creative technologists, poets, and collectives for an in-person convening in Los Angeles, CA. The convening sits in a place of emergence that centers on relationality and respect. We define experimental reality practices as immersive, virtual, and augmented reality practices that are rooted in visual arts, including time-based media, moving image art, and experimental filmmaking practice. We will explore many different variations of experimental realities, including and beyond the tech.
“Our grants help to ensure that a broad range of artistic voices participate in cultural dialogue around issues of pressing local, regional and national concern.”
