Description

Digitaler Entwurf und Virtualität II / Digital Design and Virtuality II

or how to create virtual spaces and virtual experiences (online)

The lecture concentrates on learning free / low budget tools for the creation of virtual spaces and virtual experiences that can be explored online while searching for possible new forms of exploring and experiencing art today.
The main focus will be on learning and using Unity3D to create single player virtual experiences (an artwork or an exhibition) for the web. The participants will also learn Mozilla Hubs and Mozilla Spoke to create online virtual experiences that can be access by multiple users at the same time using Desktop or VR browsers.

Additionally, the lecture also provides an overview and insight into Virtual Art and virtual fruition of art by experiencing contemporary virtual and online art, collections and exhibitions and by looking at historical examples and relevant essays. Each week the participants will receive some selected projects to download and experience. Thoughts, comments and visual materials will be shared and discussed together weekly.

As the lecture is predominantly working with virtual and online tools, the lecture will be held online only
