Mat Collishaw Talks Thresholds with VMI Studio #VirtualReality #celebratephotography

Interview excerpt from VMI Studio:

Michele Baker: Let’s start by talking about the exhibition itself. Can you tell me a little more about Thresholds? What does the piece involve?

Mat Collishaw: Thresholds is a VR project. It’s quite a specific virtual reality project, involving a lot of other sensory stimulation, such as haptic interaction. The warmth from the fire is created by a heater, and we are also bringing smells in there, as well as, of course, the scene outside the window.

I work in a lot of different media anyway; paintings and laser scanning, for example, so VR was an obvious thing to work with. Though I am not really a techie person, this medium can give you a 360-degree full immersion in the image, obviously something that needs addressing if you’re an artist, I think.

But I wanted a project that was interesting as an idea, not just a magic forest with unicorns and little elves running around, or a documentary film. I wanted to make something that was a concept, because I am a conceptual artist, although my work is very accessible.

We #celebratephotography here at Adafruit every Saturday. From photographers of all levels to projects you have made or those that inspire you to make, we’re on it! Got a tip? Well, send it in!

If you’re interested in making your own project and need some gear, we’ve got you covered. Be sure to check out our Raspberry Pi accessories and our DIY cameras.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
