Welcome to vc: Virtual Content
vc is a digital art project by North East England-based British/Australian software engineer Alex Moon.
Combining existing AI/machine learning technologies to create explorable dream worlds, vc is a series of short videos which bring a poetic touch to the emerging form. Each piece is crafted with care, and the results are like nothing you've seen.
