Short description

Nexon Computer Museum (NCM) this year is accepting submissions for its 2020 Open Call, themed “V Reality“, to supports experimental and creative VR, AR and MR art projects.

NCM Open Call is an open contest that encompasses every innovative and challenging interpretation of virtual and augmented reality. It has become the first and most consistently operated virtual reality contest in Korea, which has been explored the fine contents filled with fresh attempts by using VR, AR for the past 5 years.

‘V REALITY’ includes various meanings
’V’ means virtual, number 5 etc. and at the same time, it reminds us an inverted penrose triangle. The Penrose triangle is a virtual image that exists only in two dimensions, and it means the overlap of virtual and reality that is continuously connected and mixed. It encompasses all sorts of innovative and challenging interpretations of the new media called virtual reality, extending the boundaries of reality and crossing the realm of imagination into reality.

There are no special qualifications or restrictions, as it has been the case in the past four years, so every field, such as game, video, media art that deals with VR, AR, and MR can apply to anyone regardless of nationality, age, gender, or history, without limitation of platform, genre, or subject. Priority is given to ideas and planning that can expand the boundaries of thinking and emotion rather than sophisticated technology.

Quality of work and level of completion will be evaluated by overall planning, design and technical development. SK Telecom’s VR and AR experts will participate in the evaluating process.
