“In today’s society, where drones are used for warfare and romantic relationships begin online can we any longer distinguish between the so-called real and the virtual?” (Cécile B. Evans)

Everyone talks about VR nowadays, but aren’t sites like Facebook and Instagram already their own form of virtual reality being fed on a daily basis by disembodied snippets of our lives? Do we have to worry that soon the real world will be in second place?

In this course, we will be inspired and challenged by different artistic approaches that embrace “the virtual” as a concept, aesthetic, or technique. We will start by using simple methods to help amplify and channel our ideas and concepts through media and technology. Furthermore, we will use Unity 3D to create our very own virtual worlds, objects, or avatars which will include integrating virtual reality devices like the HTC VIVE. This course involves working with, but is not limited to, the Performance Platform at the Digital Bauhaus Lab.
