Teaching artistic creation within (and for) the Metaverse



Event details

Although the adoption of the Metaverse is evolving at a slower speed than anticipated, it is still happening worldwide. In many cases, when creating an environment for the Metaverse, the aim is to simulate reality, a certain condition or an activity taking place in the physical world. However, when a simulation is not required, creating a virtual world involves the composition and development of a multisensory, synthetic environmental representation, which does not necessarily resemble physical spaces and within which these activities may appropriately unfold. This direction of research and education will be discussed with the help of relevant theoretical frameworks and several case studies. Furthermore, the art of creating virtual form, spaces and narratives for the Metaverse can ideally be taught within the Metaverse and towards this end, relevant implementations will be presented and discussed.
