Art has always acted as a mirror to society. Our art changes as things like technology, globalization, and now, a global pandemic drastically alter the way we live our lives. Canada is a hub for creative digital technologies and the arts. In this episode of RBC Disruptors, John Stackhouse is joined by iconic Canadian photographer Ed Burtynsky and his business partner and gaming expert, Vikas Gupta. Together at AVARA Media, they are pushing the boundaries of photography using augmented reality, virtual reality and photogrammetry to create immersive, three-dimensional visual experiences. With people across the globe adjusting to a widely professed “new normal,” a boom in augmented reality and virtual experiences is taking place. In this episode, we discuss:  

  • How is technology transforming the photographic experience?
  • How can Canadian artists and creatives make an impact in a digital-first world?
  • How are augmented reality and virtual reality going to help us better communicate and enhance the human experience post COVID-19?
