Description

The explosion of consumer virtual reality is driving a new wave of innovation in 360 video and real-time interactive environments. Video artists can project these environments into physical spaces using spatial augmented reality techniques. This special evening event, produced by LA’s ACM SIGGRAPH chapter in cooperation with LAVA (Los Angeles Video Artists), focuses on large-scale video art including 360 video, projection mapping and real-time group interactive environments. The event will be held in the Vortex Dome, a 360 full-dome projection studio in downtown Los Angeles, and will include live demos from the speakers and other area artists.
