// PROGRAM TRACKS
Be Another Lab / Tools and Techniques of Immersive Media and Embodiment / Interdisciplinary Science and Relational Art Practices

Outlier Collective / WebVR: VR for Web Developers. Multidevice VR Content and Data Visualization in plain HTML
If you are a Web Developer or know the basics of HTML5, you can now ease up your VR learning curve and implement VR Experiences for all devices (Rift, Vive, Cardboard) with tools like Mozilla’s AFrame. Tools for telling stories with VR Video and PhotoSpheres and for implementing Data Visualizations (like networks and Neurath’s isotypes) will be presented, along with some relevant datasets. All the material (code and datasets) will be available in GitHub. Conducted by Óscar Marín Miró, whose interest lies in creative coding, WebVR docs and meaningful data visualisation.

Fabbula / GIVE ME SOME SPACE ! DIY ways to reclaim your Reality.
VR as entertainment is good but making your own is so much better. In this Fabbula workshop, we will have you make your own made virtual realities and see what it does to you, be it challenging social norms, empowering you or develop new attachment. Principle is simple : come with your work in 2D, 3D or whichever is your existing software or medium and explore all the tools and ways to make it “a place of one’s own”.
Using DIY tools, the workshop aims at prototyping virtual environments using mixed immersive techniques such as photogrammetry, 3D rendering and 360 video.
Tags : Mixed Realities // Temporary Autonomous VR Zone // Sympoetic worlding // Glitched worlds // Bend space times // Neo-sorcery // Queer // Higher states of consciousness // Speculative fabulations // Artistic synaesthesia // Gesamtkunstwerk // Umwelts of invertebrae and octopuses //
