Natasha Hersham and Victoria Westerman, Co-Founders, Visualogical, said: “The effects of the pandemic have been devastating on the cultural sector, but an increased appetite for exploring the digital realm offers new opportunities to open up the arts to truly global audiences, making culture unprecedentedly accessible. We believe that if harnessed sensitively and ethically, online experiences, and the communities generated through them, can not only complement the physical art world but actually further enrich it, leading to a cyclical, symbiotic, and sustainable ecosystem set to flourish far beyond the pandemic. Welcome to the 'Phygital Era'… It is so exciting to be working with 15 of the UK’s leading cultural institutions, experimenting with the latest XR technology. We can’t wait for you to try it. Bon (virtual) voyage!”
