Discover the world of embodied virtual world creation in this interactive workshop. You’ll learn how to create your own virtual avatar wearing VR headsets and using 3D modelling software Gravity Sketch and auto-rigging software Adobe Mixamo. Step beyond the conventional perception of virtual reality as an escape from reality and explore new forms of hybrid intimacy by tracking, moving and sensing your material bodies in virtual reality.
