The media of mixed reality allows for increasingly immersive experiences that blend the virtual and real, and that change how we perceive and think about what is real. This course attempts to place the evolution of mixed reality in the long history of humans hacking perceptions of reality: from pyramids to cathedrals to google earth VR, from cave paintings to novels to film to immersive cinema.

This course will introduce you to the different forms mixed reality takes. We will

learn about the different hardware platforms mixed reality spans; Practice creating by taking a short story from Italo Calvino and seeing how it translates into mixed reality; Understand the context of mixed reality as it relates to philosophy and psychology; Critically review currently available mixed reality experiences to be inspired and understand best practices.

Prerequisite: A willingness to experiment with vr/ar technologies independently or collaboratively to expand your creative practice and create an impactful immersive spatial experience.

Required Materials: Computer for vr content creation.
