Can the virtual become truly real? Can it become art? These were the questions being asked as the Virtually Real project opened at The Royal Academy of Arts in London last week. The first ever 3D-printed artwork in virtual reality went on display this weekend as part of an exclusive collaborative pop-up between HTC Vive and The Royal Academy. Artists used programs like Kodon and Google's Tilt Brush to also bring 100's of simulated worlds to life. Though the experiment and exhibition are now over, the questions raised will definitely have people thinking about how VR can merge with our own world, at least in an artistic sense. Read about how The Royal Academy students brought their work to life on a virtual canvas and how they approached the successes and failures of the technology.
