我们在寻找什么?
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

科技公司正在对艺术家进行投资,以提高创造力。 沉浸式媒体也正在重新定义着讲故事的方式。 中国越来越倾向于利用科学技术将自己的历史和文化遗产数字化并将其带入大众生活。
Technology companies are investing in artists to improve creativity. Immersive media is redefining storytelling. There is a growing trend in China to use technology to digitalize its history and cultural heritage and bring them to the masses.

我们邀请所有利用数码、混合媒介的艺术家和传统艺术家参与这个挑战。 我们正在寻找将技术与艺术媒介相结合的提案。 我们对沉浸式作品的兴趣非常广泛,包括:VR,AR,混合现实,环境技术,数字绘图,声音,表演以及其他具有创造性和探索性的艺术表达。
This challenge invites digital, mixed media and traditional artists to apply. We are looking for proposals that integrate technology with artistic media. Our interests in immersive work are wide-ranging, inclusive of VR, AR, Mixed Reality, ambient technologies, digital drawings, sound, performance, and other creative and exploratory approaches.

我们想为从儿童到成人的所有观众提供可以动手实践、具有影响力、能身临其境参与互动体验的创意。 并将优先考虑那些参与性更强以及能够适用于最广泛年龄层的提案。
We want ideas for hands-on, impactful, immersive and interactive experiences for audiences that range from children to adults. Priority will be given to submissions which are participatory and accessible for a wide age range.


我们期待怎样的项目成果?
WHAT PROJECT OUTCOMES ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

十个VR短篇故事。我们希望发现、助力成长和展示以上海为活动中心的年轻中国艺术家。那些想要利用身临其境的技术创造新作品的艺术家,那些想要重新定义地方特色文化、遗产(包括书法等非物质遗产)分享传播方式的艺术家,那些想要重新定义怎样讲故事的艺术家。我们还将引导艺术家使用Artivive将2D图像,3D模型,360视频和GIF转换为AR体验,这将成为VR短篇故事的预告片。
Ten VR short stories. We want to discover, develop and showcase emerging Chinese artists, based in Shanghai, who want to use immersive technology to create new work with powerful messages focused on redefining the way we share stories of local culture, heritage (including intangible heritage, such as calligraphy) and design. We will also guide artists to convert 2D images, 3D models, 360 videos, and GIFs to AR experiences, using Artivive, that will act as teasers for the VR short stories.
