Google launches Tilt Brush 'artist in residency' VR art initiative


The landscape of cutting-edge art, usually limited to traditional multimedia, audio and visual hacks, is undergoing a major shift with the advent of virtual reality art tools like Oculus Medium and Quill

Now, one of the earliest players in the space, Google’s VR paint-meets-sculpting app Tilt Brush, has launched what it calls an “artist in residency” program to push VR art even further into the mainstream of creative expression.
