More about Jörg Frohnmayer
“Information Space VR” will experiment with representation of Data in Space. The workshop will think and develop spatial options to create an information space with all the data collected in virtual reality (VR).
Main focus will be on the aesthetical change of the collected data when everything is presented within a virtual environment (VE). The topic of remediation 1 is a key element when thinking about VE’s because we always bring other media to present in VR. Also the topic of responiveness2 has a big impact while designing for VE’s because of its interactive nature. At the time we enter the virtual world we have already an interactive sensation through the head-tracking.
The Information Space created should tribute the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus architecture and reflect is modern and avant-garde origin.
