POV VR XXX

Project Info

Project Description

POV VR XXX is a project created by POV paper and Maria Guta for “La Fête du Slip”, a festival talking about sexualities of Lausanne. The project is a co-production between POV paper and Dirty Bacon.

“POV VR was a first of a kind experience from several points of view. I had never before deal with porn nor VR in my practice, so it was quite a challenge and a revelation at the same time. And when I say revelation I mostly refer to the VR part. Shooting in 360° changed so much the perspective on things and all of my “know how” when dealing with a camera and what`s in front of it (in this case – all around it). From building up the concept to the final result there were many exciting discoveries. But probably the one I would like to mostly point on in my presentation is simulating someone`s point of view in VR, which can be extended to concepts like out of body / inhabiting other bodies experience. This relates a lot with the main topics in my art practice but it adds so many more layers to it. Thanks to the VR technology, it opens up to infinite new possibilities and experiences that would have appeared quite utopian not so long ago.” Maria Guta
