Le manifeste du VRAC prône l’interaction sensible et participative dans des œuvres artistiques de réalité virtuelle dans la philosophie des Surréalistes et du GRAV, le Groupe de Recherche en Art Visuel.
Les œuvres du VRAC aspirent à permettre au visiteur de vivre des expériences singulières, qui émergent de ses actions tout en questionnant sa réalité propre. Dans son processus de création, le collectif permet au public par une démarche participative d’être acteur au sein des ateliers, des performances et des expositions.
