Started experiment project / community "NEW VIEW"
Psychic VR Lab (Head office: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, President: Masahiro Yamaguchi) which provides VR creative platform "STYLY (http://styly.cc)", in collaboration with PARCO (Tokyo Toshima), and Loftwork (Shibuya-ku, Tokyo), started an experiment project / community "NEW VIEW" to exploit the design of new expression and experiences in3D space. On January 22, they published the web site (https://newview.design/).
Tag line of NEW VIEW is, “DESIGN YOUR ULTRA EXPERIENCE” (= Design super experience!). With the development of technology, the world of expression will head to the rich area of 3D leading from two dimensional to the real world. For near future, this attempt aims to pursue new expressions and discover and to nurture the next generation creators.
NEWVIEW is designing spaces and experiences by expanding the field of expression to 3D by creators who embody culture in various fields such as fashion, music, video, graphics, and illustrations. They’re setting up experiments to create the next generation culture experience (super experience) that freely moves between real space and creative space.
As the first activity of the project, they hold a meetup event to discover and train creators in February 2018 in Tokyo, Spain, Taiwan and Thailand. Prior to holding the event, works of 3D spaces by more than 10 creators who have decided to participate in this project in advance will be released.
Five work created by STEREO TENNIS (graphic artist / illustrator), Ishida Masumi (photographer), Densuke the 28 (visual writer), Akira Otsuki (video director / visual writer), and Ei Erima (graphic artist / art director) is opened to the public, at the time of January 22nd. Other works will be published from now on.
