During the Digital Day, RSI will present, in its COM space, the project Hors Cadre, produced by RTS Culture and realized by dna studios of Bulle (FR). "Rediscover art in virtual reality" is the exhibition which will be available to the public in Piazza Riforma between 9.00 and 20.00. Four 360° videos inspired by paintings of famous Swiss artists will be available:

  • The Island of the Dead (1880), by Arnold Böcklin;
  • Intimacy (1898), by Félix Vallotton;
  • The night (1889-90), by Ferdinand Hodler;
  • The woodcutter (1910), by Ferdinand Hodler.

Virtual reality, and the almost infinite possibilities of digital technology, also allowed new audiences to approach art. In particular, the younger generations will be involved with a tailor-made journey, which is valorised by visual and sound effects. Moreover, the video texts are assigned to recognised specialists in the field.
