Workshop concept

“Information Space VR” will experiment with representaion of Data in Space.

The workshop will think and develop spatial options to create an information space with all the data collected in virutal reality (VR). Main focus will be on the aesthetical change of the collected data when everything is presented within a virtual environment (VE). The topic of remediation1 is a key element when thinking about VE’s because we always bring other media to present in VR. Also the topic of responiveness2 has a big impact while designing for VE’s because of ist interactive nature. At the time we enter the virtual world we have already a interactive sensation through the headtracking.

The Information Space created should tribute the 100th aniversary of Bauhaus architecture and reflect is modern and avantgarde origin.



Technically we will be use the gaming software Unity 3d to prototype our concepts and the HTC Vive head mounted display (HMD) for the full VR experience.

At the workspace we needVive ready Windows  PC  ( with

Steam  and  Steam  VR  installed  ( for  the  use  of  HTC  Vive) , Unit 2018.3.6  installed ( and Visualstudio Community Edition (normally comes with Unity3d installation depending on how u install it

Every  student PC (Windows  or Mac) should  have  the same Unity version and a texteditor (Visualstudio or Monodevelop) installed as  well  as  some  basic photo editing software and depending on their research material 3d modeling or sound software.

Make  sure  that  Unity  is  signed  in  with  your  own aaccount  if  you  have  none  just  make  one.
