The exhibition “No.Need.For.Real?” curated by Arthur Clay poses and invites reflection on the important question whether there is a need for “the real” and if so how it couples and contrasts with virtuality in media art and the digital tradition.  “No.Need.For.Real?” takes a multidisciplinary approach to present works which bridge technology, art, history, science and engineering. The major curatorial focus is on the diverse use of virtual systems in information society as represented in contemporary artworks that showcase individual approaches to application-oriented research.  These illustrate prescient technological developments in areas of 3D visualization and interaction. Within the general context of the International Conference on Virtual Systems and Multimedia (VSMM), the exhibition “No.Need.For.Real?” explores and confronts the complexity of attempting to divine “what will come next” in terms of “the real” versus “the virtual.”
