November VR workshops for artists in Eastbourne

As part of the Devonshire Collective’s Digital Drop-in series of workshops for local artists, Adventures + Wisdom Institute will be delivering a couple of afternoon sessions in the last weekend of November 2017.

Entitled InsideOutsideSeaside in VR, the workshops will be held at DC3 1-5 Seaside, Eastbourne BN22 7NA, 2-5pm on Saturday and 1-4pm Sunday, 25/26th November 2017. Both sessions will be facilitated by Jim Byford.

As the emerging immersive (VR/AR/MR) layers of the internet pose new questions about representations of place and identity – we’ll consider how we might represent community and locality in the first instance – beyond Google Earth in VR for example. We’ll play with representative artefacts, publishing our own online environments that are inside and outside, Seaside.

Artists will be able to explore the use of physical and digital media artefacts deriving from the immediate local vicinity as sounds, videos, images, 3D object files – imported and manipulated within virtual reality environments.

Tickets can be booked here online are £15 per 3 hour session or £10 for Devonshire Collective members, OAPs or unemployed. Maximum of 6 people per session.
