While at ITP I have led several sessions relating to 360 video.
Above: Don and Franklin inside my 'Janus' 360 viewer. They are both watching the exact same video, but through two separate viewers attached at 180 degrees - meaning each of them always sees the video from the polar opposite perspective of the other. How will this constraint affect their visit to the Serengheti National Park?
Below is an adaptation of Russian absurdist author Daniil Kharm's short vignette The Meeting. It was made together with Rotem Linial and Noah Pivnick. The story was translated by Matvei Yankelevich.
Over semester break, I led a 6-hour session introducing students to the various stages of creating 360 video: from conceptualizing to shooting to editing. Using found materials, we adapted the short stories of Kharms.
HACKING THE HEADSET
Below are a few images from a 3-hour mixed-media session I taught, in which students design both a custom 360 mask -- and the 360 video to be viewed from within that mask.
