Exploring Non-human Language and Vision in Virtual Reality Within the Context of Visual Culture


This study investigates non-human communication and perception via virtual reality (VR) in the field of visual culture. It seeks to integrate visual stimuli and evaluate a non-human perspective in a simulated environment. To lay the groundwork, an emphasis is placed on comprehending the conventional human perspective, particularly through an examination of cinematic and filmic language. The language of film, including narrative structures, shot compositions, and editing techniques, has had a substantial impact on our understanding of non-human visuality. By carefully analyzing the linguistic structure of film, we can gain insight into how human visualize non-human. The study then shifts its focus to investigating language and vision of non-human entities using virtual reality. Using VR's potential to challenge established human perceptions, visual cues are strategically placed to emphasize the non-human viewpoint. The objective is to uncover new dimensions of visual comprehension in VR while revealing the limitations and biases of human perception. The purpose of this study is to expand our understanding of visual culture beyond human experience by investigating non-human language and vision using virtual reality technology. Through a rigorous analysis of linguistic elements in cinema and its relevancy to VR technology, we aim to uncover new perspectives and investigate visual communication that is more inclusive in an interconnected visual culture.
