The second event in the Canisius College of Arts & Sciences Digital Humanities Speaker Series is Thursday, April 27, at 4:00 p.m. in Lyons Hall, Room 418.

Przemyslaw J. (PJ) Moskal, PhD, associate professor of digital media arts, will present on emerging trends in virtual reality (VR) and showcase some of his recent artwork in this sphere. As he’ll explain, a new wave of enthusiasm about virtual reality (VR) poses interesting artistic challenges and opportunities for the creation of digital art. Immersion, a key component of a VR experience, plays an important role in the perception of art and in the emotional involvement of a viewer. Moskal will also examine traditions of immersion through the lens of the intertwined worlds of art, science and technology.

Moskal is the director of digital media arts at Canisius and teaches courses in interaction design, game development and animation as part of the game design concentration.
