In its fourth year, the VR Arles Festival once again gives the floor to talented virtual artists working with immersive media. The festival consists of a large exhibition of virtual reality artworks, a conference day, workshops for kids, and a writing residency. Among the exhibitions on show at Couvent Saint-Césaire throughout the summer: Danish artist Jakob Kudsk Steensen’s Re-Animated, a simulation of a post-Anthropocene world in which extinct species are “reanimated” virtually; HanaHana, a participatory work by artist Mélodie Mousset, making use of our bodies in a deeply transformative, funny, and sensitive collective experience. Photographer Olivier Cablat’s La Preuve de l’Existence des Zombies (Proof that Zombies Exist) is an augmented installation connecting print photography to the virtual image. We’re proud to present Traveling While Black, a powerful documentary work by Roger Ross Williams and Felix & Paul Studios, in which participants relive the restricted movements of African Americans during the darkest hours of racial segregation in the United States; and the dreamy world of Gloomy Eyes, a masterful animated narrative by Argentinians Jorge Tereso and Fernando Maldonado.
