This workshop aims to reduce the learning curve and required technology to create virtual reality projects.
We’ll cover building for VR in the browser using an easy to learn framework called A-Frame, and discuss other libraries in development.
We’ll also cover tangible VR such as drawing and modifying photos to create 360 images with perspective grid paper and look at examples of how artists are using physical objects to create VR experiences.
The first hour of the workshop will be spent showing examples of projects that have been created in these ways and short tutorials on these different methods. The last hour will be spent working on your own projects. We’ll have VR headsets available, but please bring your own Google Cardboard headsets, or something similar, if you have them.
