Enabled by the pandemic, social VR has taken a giant leap forward. Traditionally, artists have been some of the early adopters of new technologies and this medium is no exception. To celebrate the light at the end of the tunnel, HYPHEN-HUB is showcasing four creators working on social VR platforms. These pioneering artists will discuss the elements that led them through their creative process and how this platform enabled them to push their artistic boundaries and explore new models of creativity.


Claudia Hart (CNMAT Affiliate Artist) and Kurt Hentschlager will talk about their latest works, including two of Claudia's Mozilla Hub spaces where she built live performances inside her virtual space. Kurt will present his most recent work No Exit Oasis, an immersive visual and sonic experience specially designed for a Mozilla Hub platform.

Andrew Blanton, musician and creative technologist studying Music Composition works closely with The Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT) where he is pursuing his PhD on the emergent potential between cross-disciplinary arts and technology in the context of Music Composition and New Media Art.

Matthew D. Gantt, artist, composer, and PhD student at Rensselear Polytechnic Institute or RPI/ EMPAC, NY, is researching spatial sound, virtual reality and the experimental arts practice as a frame to refigure new possibilities for immersive media futures.
