"Versions is a new conference on creative practice and alternate realities, with a focus on virtual reality, copresented by New Museum’s incubator, NEW INC, and Kill Screen. Versions aims to shift the conversation around VR from one focused on tools and gadgets to a dynamic interdisciplinary discussion that will examine how this technology is being shaped and defined by artists, scientists, filmmakers, the gaming industry and more. Conversations will span VR’s proclaimed status as an “empathy machine” and how it’s being leveraged by journalists and the military; address urgent questions regarding emerging standards around ethics and practice; consider the technology’s relationship to the brain and its neurological and psychological effects; as well as how practitioners are exploiting the format’s opportunities for embodiment and immersion."
