Artist Statement:


    Dr Andrew Yip researches the applications of immersive environments and aesthetics to cultural heritage practice. His SIGGRAPH submission Metascape demonstrates new algorithmic processes for mapping, simulating and visualizing emotional memories, in this case those of a WWI battle. This work arises from art historical research into the visual culture of war representation as well as applied research into experimental interactive 3D visualisation. With a background in art history, museums, and 3D art, Andrew designs exhibition installations for galleries and museums. His virtual reality installation ‘Sidney Nolan’s Ned Kelly Unmasked: Virtual Reality’ won a 2018 Museums and Galleries Australia National Award, and his ‘Henry VR’ was the Art Gallery of NSW’s first virtual reality exhibition. Andrew is currently a post-doctoral research fellow at the iCinema Centre for Interactive Cinema Research, UNSW and previously held positions at the Laboratory for Innovation in Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums, UNSW, and the Art Gallery of NSW.
