What virtual reality can do for art.

If you cast aside virtual reality as mere entertainment or pastime, and to the contrary, present it as a new instrument for knowledge, the application of this new language to art acquires ethical and aesthetic significance. In addition to immersive virtual reality experiences installed in museums, with virtual reality you can reach people who cannot travel, for any number of reasons; you can push the boundaries of art collections and exhibitions, enhancing them with hard-to-imagine content: meetings with artists from the past, walks and insight within works of art. Unique curations can be studied, new languages for narration and divulgation of art and the physical spaces dedicated to them.

Luca Pacioli, De Divina Proportione, 1497

El arte – siempre – requiere irrealidades visibles.
