Ieva Viksne in her art work SYNK IN examines the impact of biometric data – brain waves as an interface – on how the viewer experiences the virtual reality environment – the viewer will have the opportunity to sink in the water – the subconscious. In the Kaspars Lēvalds VR artwork “The House of Memory” virtual home rooms depict the representations of important memories for the author. Diana Paldina will blend her and the spectator’s memories into the scent cloud. Oskars Zikmanis asks the question of the ethics of the art market in the documentary “The Patron of Arts”.
