This exciting, two-hour extended reality (XR) workshop with Armando Lopez-Bircann will give an overview of how to self-teach, troubleshoot, integrate self-care, and navigate the expectations and challenges of creating multidisciplinary work.
During the workshop, Lopez-Bircann will cover digital assets that include augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), 3D printing, video, audio, and images. Topics will include required workflows, resources, and mindsets and combining technologies, such as 2D media, 3D models, music, performance, and wearables.
Students will need a computer or smart device (phone/tablet) and internet access to apply workshop techniques to their art practice, but these aren’t required to fully participate in the workshop.
This workshop is offered through VisArts’ Center for Craft Studies. Registration is underwritten by a grant from the Windgate Foundation.
