Handheld Gallery: Interactive Art for Mobile Phones

You don’t need to know super advanced coding and own an expensive headset to make art that engages with virtual space. In this class you’ll learn how to use your phone’s gyroscope, camera, and touch capabilities as a vehicle for interactive digital art.

Handheld Gallery will focus on developing 3D graphics, virtual reality, and augmented reality experiences for smartphones. Readings and discussion survey the artistic and technological innovations happening at this new frontier. Students will be introduced to the Unity3D game engine and create their own AR/VR mobile app.
