Abstract

Many installation art projects have appeared from the 20th to the 21st century. There are diverse types of installation art. Due to the development and implementation of technology, installation art is divided into physical installation art that is entirely physical, without any digital application. On the other hand, virtual installation art implements virtual elements to physical installation art or is a complete virtual experience. This article discusses the relationship between these two art forms, from their definitions to the examples of different artists and works that have become famous in the field. It also explores how different digital platforms can serve as a medium for the completion of installation artists' work. A collaborative project is introduced at the end to deeply explore the relationship between physical installation art and virtual installation art. The project led to the conclusion that one can find elements and characteristics of physical installation art applications in a completely virtual installation artwork. However, with the development and usage of technology and digital tools, artists can flexibly create the installation art space they want to complete.
