MVR

With the decreasing size and cost of computer vision, digital components, and advances in virtual reality, we are faced with a renewed awareness of the impact of current digital practices on the physical body. MVR is a lecture event series focused on new forms of exchange between body and technology developed by Eyebeam alumni Nancy Nowacek and David Sheinkopf, Director of Technology at Pioneer Works, and curated by Nancy Nowacek. MVR ran for three nomadic seasons moving from Eyebeam to Pioneer Works and other like-minded institutions such as Baby Castles and New, Inc.
