This special double issue of Theatre and Performance Design, ‘On Virtual Models’, is both a succession and an expansion of research for our 2018 monograph, The Model as Performance. Staging Space in Theatre and Architecture (Bloomsbury). The monograph was the outcome of a project initiated many years earlier within our creative practices and scholarly works. The Model as Performance intentionally focused on the physical scale model and its performative, epistemic, and cosmopoietic (worldmaking) capacities. In parallel to publishing the monograph, we guest-edited a special double issue of Theatre and Performance Design entitled ‘On Models’. We invited theorists and practitioners to respond to the overall ‘model’ project and contribute to a further discourse acknowledging and articulating the physical model’s agency across the disciplines of theatre and architecture. This current special double issue extends our focus to observe the virtual model and its capacity to redefine location, time, and narrative, provoking dialogues and connections that emerge between material realities and the immaterial virtual realm, beyond the functionality of the human-machine interface (HMI).
