After the success of the social virtual reality (VR) symposium at Central Saint Martins at University of the Arts Londo (UAL), a few members of ACE Connectors together with digital artist Alejandro Escobar are taking a step further with their VR experiment by launching a new exciting project: the Assembly Line. This is the result of the joint effort of individuals with different skills and backgrounds, but united by a common interest for the arts and for the potentials of VR within the context of arts schools.
The team of the newborn Assembly Line are now working on their first event, which will kick off at Tate Exchange on 5th March 2018. The topic that will be explored is in line with the main Tate Exchange Production theme of this year. In fact, the question that the Assembly Line want to explore is how social virtual reality can enhance and facilitate e-learning experience for arts students and teachers, and this will be done by sharing the VR experience with the audience.
The event at Tate Exchange will be possible thanks to the collaboration with the Digital Makers at UAL, Tim Morgan from Central Saint Martins and Savraj Matharu, Programme Director MA Interactive Media Practice at University of Westminster.
More information about the event will be available soon, but in the meantime check the Tate Exchange and Assembly Line websites for more information.
