Virtual Reality Workshops
Working with artist Daniel Regan inviting participants to build upon their project Be Here, Now, which explores the soothing qualities that landscape can provide for us. In these workshops participants get the chance to experiment with virtual reality technology in relation to landscape.
In these workshops participants attend two sessions. The first session outdoors as part of a walk. During the walk we use a 360 degree camera to capture the land around us and discuss the impact that landscape has on us. In the second session we edit the virtual reality footage and looking at how VR technology can transport us to another place.
In this workshop combining studio photography, instant printing and making around questions of who we are and how we see ourselves.
In this workshop participants have the opportunity to take their own portrait (with support) and then respond to how they see themselves, combining materials and words to explore notions of identity, presentation and self portraiture.
