Learn how a procedural, generative workflow can be employed for virtual reality platforms.

Prefix Studios will guide you through using the Unity game engine to create a unique visual experience for virtual reality headsets.

An algorithmic 3D model made in Houdini, especially for the workshop will be used in the virtual reality scene. Each participant will then learn how to implement procedural techniques to generate their own visual experience.

You will also learn how to introduce audio-reactive elements, further exploiting the real-time power of generative artwork on an immersive platform.

This workshop is part of Generating Systems, presented by Near Now Studio member Matt Woodham: a series of six creative, DIY workshops over two days, led by expert artists and toolmakers.

Participants will learn a cross-section of cutting-edge techniques to create generative and computational artworks. You will learn to use specially designed software and hardware systems to create live, real-time video, interactive installations and generative art – utilising technologies such as virtual reality, machine learning and analogue devices.

These events accompany Sensing Systems, Matt Woodham's debut solo exhibition which takes place at Bonington Gallery in Feb–March 2020.
