#Designing #Worlds in #VR a conversation with #architect Beom Jun Kim @wa.k_studio in #VRChat for @cphdox

Part 1/11 BJK and I discuss the potential and limitations of virtual spaces and architecture, in the “In My Own Skin” installation in “Community Labs” section of VRChat

It’s interesting to think about where architecture in VR is a proxy for “real life” and where it fails. Clearly touch and smell and the nuances of sounds in a space are generally missing. That is also one reason that I have found virtual exhibitions of art usually wanting because “reality” becomes the standard, the golden ring, and VR will never be the same as that. But, what if we saw this as an opportunity to see what VR makes possible such as walls that emit sound as you move by or that morph with proximity or distance?
