Artistic Research in VR

14th - 16th March

Host: Lusófona University (Lisbon, Portugal)

This seminar will invite participants to experience VR art pieces and debate them with their creators. It will look into immersive storytelling techniques and allow the participants to present their (early) ideas for developing an artistic XR experience. A technical-creative team will prototype and storyboard the idea into a proof of concept (both cinematic and interactive VR) in Gravity Sketch, Quill and Unity. A final open discussion will prepare the next research steps.
