PAGE(S) IN PROGRESS
Virtual Reality, its a large subject with a long history. We are in the process of creating immersive presentations and educational spaces that provide deeper understanding to those designing immersive 3D virtual worlds, spaces, environments, interfaces, and realities. This page is being used to share work in progress, organize ideas, and gather feedback.
At the moment, this page holds one project in 3 formats, List, Text, & Video
Top "X" Lists are often used to get attention, but they also seem to double as the most immediate research tool for our emergent medium.
Below then is our "Nine Virtual Galleries Every Designer Should Know" List :)
If you really want to know more, scroll down to an hour, twenty minute video.
....its a presentation on VR design & art galleries, recorded live in our VR classroom
Second format, a MS Word doc
The Design of VR Art Galleries (Download Draft Text)
… reality | a study of space, story, & interaction
This text is posted here in part for feedback. Updates to a number of sections and a closing discussion on the Isovista Gallery are coming.
This version has more detailed information on cinema & game design than the video version below.
The third format, video recording of a live demo
This VR presentation was created for "Art Teleported 2019", a digital arts conference focused on XR and issues of community.
It is the combination of 3 onground class presentations and will be broken apart in upcoming online classes.
This version then is conceptually dense and is best viewed live in VR.
Supporting materials can be found on the theory page
Andre Bazin's : Myth of Total Cinema (Film as VR)
