SPATIAL ILLUSIONS

-

In 1963, Kurt Badt stated in his Raumphanta­sien und Raumillusi­onen [Phantasies of space and illusions of space] that the abstract concept of space emerged when abstract art made its appearance in art history: “Space, about which art history has been interrogat­ing artworks for generation­s now, is not only general, it is also abstract.”

...

Material, physical spaces and immaterial virtual spaces fuse to such an extent that they are almost indistingu­ishable, at least optically. Virtual reality and augmented reality artworks demonstrat­e how, vi aV R headsets, observer dependent informatio­n and environmen­ts become a new form of artificial reality.
