Drichtel: How I used spatialized audio for immersive art performancesImmersive art could be viewed as inherently redundant in that the principle of art itself requires immersion within an artwork to appreciate it. Yet, while taking that into consideration, this is a term that can be applied to a lot of things. For the sake of this blog, I’m going to stick to digital and performance art. In this day and age, VR/AR/XR are considered a form of immersive art. One could argue that music shows are a sort of immersive art whenever shows use other elements to complement the experience (pyrotechnics, visuals behind a band, stages made out of LEDs, and so on). Modern video games, in my opinion, are a form of immersive art, as they use a lot of stimuli to appeal to the senses of the player, whether by a story or world building. Since this is such a broad term, the question “how do you create immersive art?” can only bring broad answers. Depending on how you see it, the term “immersion” might seem too vague, but being vague gives you a lot of wiggle room on how you approach the creation of the artwork, without going into esoteric concepts.
