WEIRD REALITY: Head-Mounted Art && Code is a symposium dedicated to exploring new and independent visions for virtual, augmented and mixed realities. We aim to showcase independent and emerging voices, creative approaches, diverse and oftentimes marginalized perspectives, and imaginative and critical positions on VR/AR/MR that depart from typical tech fantasies and other normative, corporate media. The symposium features artist talks, speed presentations, technical workshops and demonstrations, discussion panels, a participant-driven unconference, and a free-to-the-public “VR Salon” exhibition which is presented in close cooperation with the concurrent 2016 VIA Festival.

WEIRD REALITY lectures, workshops, and other daytime events take place on the CMU campus. If you enjoy cutting-edge live music and audiovisuals, consider spending your nights at the concurrent 2016 VIA Festival. The first 100 WEIRD REALITY passes include a pass to the 2016 VIA Festival! You can also purchase VIA passes here.

WEIRD REALITY is our fourth Art && Code (#artandcode) symposium, a series of events concerned with liberating the cultural and aesthetic potentials of emerging technologies. Half maker’s festival, half academic conference, WEIRD REALITY takes place October 6-9, 2016 on the campus and vicinity of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.
