Full day workshop series, suitable for Key Stage 4 & 5

Explore myth, symbolism and the significance of objects and monuments through virtual reality technology and the physical creation of sculptural objects.

This workshop series will investigate the creative applications of mixed reality (MR) technologies. MR is the merging of real and virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualisations where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time.

Immersive designers Alex Anderson and Paula Strunden will collaborate with students to explore this interrelationship of craft and the digital to investigate the summer exhibition of works by Michael Rakowitz.
