During the academic year 2017/2018, the Department of Communication of IUSVE - Salesian University Institute of Venice, is promoting a research project named Virtual reality: dispositives, aesthetics, images.
The aim is to elaborate new interdisciplinary methodological study tools able to identify, recognize and understand the relationships that are going on between virtual reality and cinema, photography and aesthetics analyzing the theoretical-artistic knots that characterize their possible interactions.
The one-day symposium, organized at the campus of Verona of the IUSVE, proposes creating an opportunity for exchanges between scholars, specialists and experts on the subject, in order to contribute to the ongoing debate, comparing different points of view and highlighting any problems in a perspective of sharing approaches and tools.
