IS VR FOR REAL?
WED, FEB 15, 6:45–9PM | HERMAN MILLER STUDIO
Until now, our experience with media and storytelling has been 2-dimensional at best. We have been limited by words and our imagination, or by images and our ability to interpret them. But the hype around virtual reality is big and, judging by these articles, the opportunities to alter how we interact in the world are immense.
So what does this actually mean for our everyday lives? For the work of designers? For ability we have to solve problems for businesses or for society? Tonight, in partnership with the Herman Miller Studio, we will discover the question Virtual Reality is raising in our ability to tell stories, solve problems, build new careers, and, possibly, find new solutions to the problems we can not solve.
Volunteer for this event here.
