The first of the Mordant Family VR Commissions was rolled out last month, a second is slated to open in May at Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI).
The commissions mark a big investment in new technologies, with the $240,000 initiative aiming to give VR’s cutting edge technology a shot in the arm, after coming under criticism that the quality of content presented often failed to match the technology’s innovative capacity.
