Description

Digitaler Entwurf und Virtualität I / Digital Design and Virtuality
or how to “mis-use” digital tools for artistic production
and create Virtual Reality Art while exploring emerging, free or very low budget technologies

"Virtual Reality projects frequently promise experiences so realistic you won’t believe that you are in VR. I’m interested in the opposite […] these emerging technologies can be used to capture the abstract, the confusing, the hidden, the complicated" (Claire Hentschker)

The lecture provides a theoretical and practical introduction to Virtual and Virtual Reality Art.
After a brief historical overview of Immersive, Interactive, Virtual and Augmented Reality Art and of the contemporary art scene of CG experimentalism, the lecture focuses on exploring the Virtual as an artistic medium with a practical introduction to experimental 3D and Virtual Reality design using mainly Unity3D,
a free game engine software for realtime 3D graphic visualisation, as well as other free or open source softwares and tools.
