MVR 2.2

Returning for its second year, MVR is a lecture event series focused on new forms of exchange between body and technology developed by Eyebeam Alumni Nancy Nowacek and David Sheinkopf, Director of Technology at Pioneer Works. With the decreasing size and cost of computer vision, digital components, and advances in virtual reality, we are faced with a renewed awareness of the impact of current digital practices on the physical body. MVR provides a platform for learning and discussions concerning these new interactions between body and information, device, and action. Past speakers have included Gene Kogan, Liat Berdugo, Amelia Winger, and Daniel Temkin. The first series explored an expansive breadth of topics that investigate Virtual Reality, interactive installation, techno-choreography, and displaced embodiment.
