virtual unism is a collaborative virtual reality [tele-immersive] artwork.

Sculptress Katarzyna Kobro and painter Wladyslaw Strzeminski are two early 20th century art pioneers who created the Unism art movement. In their 1931 book “Space Compositions: Space-Time Rhythm and Its Calculations,” they describe the mathematics of open spatial compositions in terms of a ratio 8:5. They developed the theory of the organic character of sculpture, a fusion of Strzeminski’s Unistic theory of painting and Kobro’s ideas about sculpture’s basis in human rhythms of movement, time-space rhythm, and mathematical symbolism. Virtual Unism is a networked art piece that explores how Unistic theories can be translated, interpreted and extended to virtual reality to create harmonic experiences that address the human senses, such as sight with visuals, hearing with sound, and balance with movement. more..
