Virtual reality programme explores Troubles Art themes

A group of art students from North West Regional College took a unique approach to their exploration of Troubles Art by using virtual reality to create their own artistic responses. 

The group explored the Troubles Art exhibition at Nerve Visual through guided tours and workshops and visited the Ulster Museum in Belfast to see the approach taken in exploring the conflict through the recently revamped Troubles and Beyond gallery. 

Through a facilitated creative programme using cutting edge virtual reality technologies, the group explored themes and subjects linked to Troubles Art before selecting words and phrases they felt best represented their lives and their futures. 

By using the Tilt Brush art application, the group designed and built their own virtual reality worlds, incorporating their words into the space. The collaborative process enabled them to work together in deciding how their worlds would look and what they should include. 

The video below is a recording of the virtual reality spaces which was also showcased in an exhibition at North West Regional College:
