Type of event: Workshop Workshop leader: Joan Soler-Adillon

Have you ever dreamed of opening a book and delving into its history? Or to enter a screen to be part of a movie? In virtual reality, this is not necessary. You are already inside. But if you are the one telling the story, what if your audience is already in this space, and can look anywhere, walk around, touch, interact …

In this hands-on workshop, you will have the opportunity to play this role. For over a year, The Smallest of Worlds artists have collected videos in private spaces around the world and turned them into 3D environments, documenting the toughest weeks of lockdown. They have built spaces that speak of this shared experience. You will be able to meet the artists and participate in their creative process, creating your own virtual reality scene using cutting edge technology … and your own voice.
