Workshop on Experiencing Material Worlds

Interested in applications of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) in the arts, culture, and cultural heritage?

TAHG member, Erica O”Neill, ran a session on theatre, set-design and scenography and VR/AR technologies in relation to our Power to Transform project in the recent College of Arts workshop on Experiencing Material Worlds.

A key aim was to promote discussion around the potential for AR recreations of historic stage-cloths and set designs in the theatres where they were originally produced. Most of these historic stage-cloths and set designs currently only exist in photographic and other archival forms.
