VR in Africa...

Although discussions on VR are not usually thought of as taking place in Africa, in 2015 an exhibition in Johannesburg, NEW DIMENSIONS, sought to curate a collection of different pieces intended to explore new storytelling practices from artists from Kenya, Ghana, South Africa. Supported by Electric South and curated by South African Ingrid Kopp, a Senior Consultant at the Tribeca Film Institute - this exhibition drew attention to the experimentation with new processes including animation and games engines such as Unity to rethink the moving image. Exhibition included artists, such as Ngendo Mukii, Jim Chuchu, Jonathan Dotse and Kabiru Seidu.
