|Title||Regulating Observers: Visuality and the influence of scopic regimes on the experience of virtual space|
This paper examines visuality and the ‘scopic regimes’ that influence how we experience digital spaces such as those offered by ‘Virtual Reality’ and ‘Augmented Reality’. These ‘regimes’ are socially constructed ways of seeing which lie outside the mechanics of vision and affect not only what we see but also how we understand our relationship with visual media.
This paper considers the particular influence of the camera and how alternative conceptual models might offer a different approach to creating experiences of virtual space. This includes the ancient ‘extramissionist’ understanding of vision and ‘emptiness’.
