      Abstract

      The boundaries between physical and virtual spaces are becoming more blurred in our everyday lives with the advent of wearable action cameras, virtual reality technologies, and algorithmicallyled audience interactions. Artists and creatives have been at the forefront of exploring these new technologies; however, little literature exists that reflects on best practices for navigating this new complex space. We reflect on our experiences in creating and participating in what we refer to as ‘hybrid multimodal performances’ or performances that blend physical and virtual spaces. We propose a framework of aesthetic choices we have implemented to seamlessly blend physical and virtual entities. We consider aspects such as the interaction between the camera and performer, the integration of multiple conceptual spaces, the changing relation between the artist and the work, and the multiple transformations of shape that occur when transitioning between physical and virtual spaces.

          Abstraction in art with implications for perception.

           Robert Zimmer (2003)
          The relationship between people and art is complex and intriguing. Of course, artworks are our creations; but in interesting and important ways, we are also created by our artworks. Our sense of the world is informed by the art we make and by the art we inherit and value, works that, in themselves, encode others' world views. This two-way effect is deeply rooted and art encodes and affects both a culture's ways of perceiving the world and its ways of remaking the world it perceives. The purpose of this paper is to indicate ways in which a study of abstraction in art can be used to discover insights into, to quote the call for papers for this issue, 'our perception of the world, acquired through experience' and 'the way concepts are formed and manipulated to achieve goals'.
