Beyond the hype – what’s behind XR, VR, AR?

In this episode, we delve into the world of virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and extended reality (XR). With Oliver Sahli, we shed light on current and future developments in these technologies – from their application in art and culture to the ethical challenges and the question of inclusivity.

Oliver Sahli conducts research at the Immersive Arts Space at ZHdK in the field of interaction between art, design and digital technology.

The language is Swiss German. 

The Immersive Arts Space is a university-wide art and tech lab that serves as a research, teaching and production platform. Through innovative and multidisciplinary projects, the IASpace team conducts technology-enabled artistic explorations of digital immersion, mixed realities and the convergence of media-based and performative practices.
