Incorporating VR in Photography, Film and Theatre

Visiting instructor Michael Naimark, an experienced media artist and researcher, global pioneer in virtual reality (VR) technology and Google VR’s first resident artist in 2015, will conduct a one-day workshop in Singapore on incorporating VR into art projects across photography, film and theatre.

Participants will hear from Naimark about the evolution of VR and significant new work in the field. They will experience virtual reality content first-hand using smartphones and Google Cardboard, as well as other VR devices. They will then have the opportunity to discuss project ideas, how it would incorporate VR and will receive feedback from Michael on potential new angles to explore. The workshop group will be kept small and intimate to allow for exchange of ideas and networking among similarly interested practitioners. The course is also aimed at practitioners from film, photography and theatre who are interested to find out more about VR as an artistic medium.
