360° Stereoscopic Landscape Painting - interactive landscape painting (virtual reality)
“360° Stereoscopic Landscape Painting” is an interactive landscape painting in which the image displayed on canvas is dependent on the viewer’s position. The work contemplates how digital technology can influence concepts associated with landscape painting by distorting representation patterns such as those related to “framing the view”. Capturing a specific view of a landscape can be a dynamic and interactive experience.
The experience draws on a video providing a glimpse into the painting’s creation process. A particular frame from the video was selected and transformed into an interactive 3D digital object. Using their virtual hands, the viewers are able to move fragments of canvas to explore the missing perspectives from the view that extends beyond the canvas’s boundary, while continuously changing the painting’s composition.
The work is a fragment of a larger project that includes a version for desktop web browser, an interactive 3D digital painting that can be accessed through desktop and mobile web browsers, and a painting installation that is part of an online group show in a real-time multiplayer environment. All pieces in the project share the same title.
