Whether you’re a fan of the arts, or interested in cutting-edge new technologies, the upcoming MeshMinds showcase at ArtScience Museum is arguably one of the most future-looking showcases to form part of Singapore Art Week.
Explore a 3D printed building using VR
Some visitors may have already tried VR, but it’s unlikely that many will have observed a miniature 3D printed world and explored it using VR.
Illustrator André Wee’s landscapes were built in VR and then 3D printed. His approach offers a glimpse into the possibilities of VR and 3D printing working together to revolutionize the creation process.
Says Andre Wee,
“I have always wanted more out of my illustrations and felt that the next step to experiencing them is through both bringing them off the screen into the real world and perhaps even stepping into some of them.”
Train your powers of observation in VR
Kids and the young at heart will love the experience of searching for the hidden tiger in Esther Goh’s fantastic world, brought to life in VR by Steve Lawler and Teck Lee Tan. This experience will plunge viewers into a series of artworks that have been created for ‘World Internet Safety Day’ taking place next month.
Watch an artist create art live in VR
You may have witnessed a street artist create live graffiti, but live art in VR takes the concept to a whole new 3 dimensional level.
Sit back and watch a made-in-Singapore VR movie
Writer and filmmaker Daniel Soo has created a VR short entitled ‘Spring Cleaning’ that invites viewers to accompany an elderly woman through remembering, forgetting, and the stories about ourselves we can’t help but keep telling.
Witness a band use movement to control their hand-made instruments
With no prior knowledge of electronics, music students from LASALLE College of the Arts have created their own electronic music instruments activated by sensors.
All this and so much more, including gaming, a vending machine that uses social media as currency, VR graffiti station, AR.
