The Art and Science of Virtual Reality

Lecturer:  Daniel Landau
TA: Tuangkamol Thongborisute

The goal of this course was to explore the visual, perceptual and corporeal mechanisms of virtual reality.  We placed in context the current wave of virtual reality technology – focusing on historical, cultural and ethical perspectives of this medium. Students got acquainted with diverse tools for creating virtual reality experiences and then were free to choose a tool or a theme as a base for their final project.
