Virtualizing Spaces: Immersive and Emersive Images from Home to City.

Fabrizia Bandi
Mars House by Krista Kim (2020)

This presentation intends to investigate the notion of virtual space, exploring the meaning and possibilities offered by virtual immersive spaces (VR) and emersive technologies such as augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR). Through a selected exploration of art installations, architectural projects, and theories, this study aims to reinterpret these technologies as instances of the gradual intertwining of a virtual realm and physical space. Within this framework, I will acknowledge the "virtual" not as a static or distinct dimension, but as an interactive and dynamic process that has gradually merged with physical space.

Beyond the possible meanings that VR and AR images present, I also take into consideration the aesthetic experience evoked by these media, merging the perception of an image with a spatial experience. The classical terminology related to these phenomena (immersiveness, sense of presence, unframedness) will be analyzed within the perceptive structure of the experiencer. The study provides an opportunity to think about the complex relationship between the real and the virtual, and to open up new ways of reading and understanding the spaces in which we live. In this perspective, the presentation will focus especially on domestic and urban space, two contexts that represent fundamental places in our daily lives, where virtualization has had a significant impact. It will be discussed how both the domestic and urban dimensions have been increasingly virtualized, including the environmental and emersive images of VR and AR.
