One to One Development Trust are creating Wakefield’s first Virtual Reality Contemporary Art Gallery: SurroundVR
Six locally based artists with no previous VR experience working across different art forms have created their own work ‘live’ in VR.
The artists taking part include: Tracey Yates, Roo Veeren, Alicia Wallace, James Rattigan, Barry Snaith and Stephen Williamson. The results are being woven into an imaginary new digital gallery “15,000 feet above Wakefield” and accessible only through Virtual Reality.
SurroundVR will be exhibited on 26th September 2018 at the Wakefield Art Walk and made available online.
