The awe-striking power of virtual reality is evident to most anyone who tries it: a visceral feeling of being immersed in a fantasy, a full body epiphany one must experience first hand to believe.
For the members of PIMG, these technologies represent nascent possibilities igniting our imagination. We see them as precipitating a paradigm shift toward a new era of multi-sensory communication, with uniquely empathic, beatific, and therapeutic potential.
Offsetting this promise however are questions of access, accountability, Privacy, and human transmutability: who will have means to these technologies? How will individuals be altered or compromised by their use? Will continued reliance on high-priced software and hardware result in asymetrical communication in the metaverse?
It's this sort of criticality which PIMG wishes to bring to public discourse through immersive realm-builing, experimentation, and visceral installations that bridge the virtual and the physical.
