John Orion Young & IIlusion Magazine on Joy and Art in Virtual Reality

John Orion Young on Bringing Joy to People via Virtual Reality Illusion Magazine

Fun read from Illusion:

What kinds of emotions or messages do you want to convey with your pieces?

Joy. A sense of personal perspective and future possibility. Over time I’ve simplified my subjects down and more recently a lot of the large physical paintings and virtual paintings are self-portraiture. We are spiritual beings having a physical experience and as an artist I want to show my experience and explore how similar it is to yours and this earthly connection we all share. The VR paintings have been a really special way to convey pure emotions. It’s kinda creepy but you plug your computer’s GPU (graphical processing unit) into your GPU (eyeballs) and have a symbiotic experience inside a machine, removed from reality. Sometimes you feel like you’re in the box painting on the side of the hard drive. Ha! In a way you become a spiritual being in a physical body having a spiritual out of body experience.
