PJ Moskal, PhD, associate professor and director of digital media arts (DMA), will present on emerging trends in virtual reality (VR) and showcase some of his recent artwork in this sphere. 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 teaches courses in interaction design, game development and animation as part of the game design concentration in the DMA program.
