...the VR demonstrations suggested a different kind of engagement with new technology, perhaps leveraging it to provide something tangible (or at least the illusion of tangibility) where previously renderings and imagination would have to do.
From June 8-10, 2017, Agile Lens attended the Theatre Communications Group Annual Conference, this year given the titular heading 'Full Circle.' There they partnered with sister firm Fisher Dachs Associates to show off their latest advances in using immersive technology for theater design.
The demonstration consisted of two parts: teaching designers to build something in Tilt Brush using a stage as a reference, then dropping that design into a full theater.
Once in the full theater, the participant was able to utilize the Vive Tracker to position a real chair in virtual space, allowing them to seamlessly stand up, sit down, and move around the space, looking at the theater, their design, and the designs of others.
And oh, hey, we got a write-up in Oregon Arts Watch.
Everyone had a blast, and it looks like Agile Lens is going to be back for next year!
