Content

The aim of this exploratory workshop is to explore the emerging virtual and augmented reality design tools. Together we aim to find some answers to the following questions: 


- How the new immersive design tools can expand the artistic toolkit of production designers? 

- How these design tools can aid in visual preplanning and communication during the artistic process? 

- What kind of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) design tools there are currently available and how to work with them? Usability and specific features of different design tools? 

- Pros and cons compared to traditional screen-based digital design tools?


These topics will be explored via demonstrations, lectures, discussion, hands-on exercises and practical research.


Details on the course content

After a short intro on the subject, the main focus of this workshop will be on exploring together immersive design tools and how they can support the work of production designer. How does it feel to sketch in virtual 3D space, instead of 2D surface such as paper or screen? Do artistic workflows of sketching and blocking out ideas change if the tools change? 

The workshop days will be divided into discovering the features of immersive VR & AR design tools, small scale research on available VR & AR tools, discussions and working individually on the given assignment. 

The workshop will be at Aalto Studios’ VR-studio at Otakaari 7 (& possibly in some additional spaces that will be announced later)
