with Christopher Manzione,
Organizer of Space Between the Skies

Led by Space Between the Skies organizer Christopher Manzione, this hands-on workshop guides participants in the technical aspects of designing 3D virtual environments, including hardware setup with Oculus Rift and Unity Game Engine. In conjunction with current exhibition Space Between the Skies.

This hands-on workshop guides participants in the technical aspects of designing 3D virtual environments, including hardware setup with Oculus Rift and Unity Game Engine. Within the workshop, participants will work in small groups and practice newly-acquired skills to create their own virtual landscapes and scenes. This workshop is designed for participants with moderate familiarity with digital 3D content creation. Experience with 3D modeling and Adobe Photoshop are strongly recommended, and participants will need to bring their own laptops that have these softwares installed.


This event is free and open to the public.
