Put on by UW School of Art + Art History + Design
Untethered showcases recent augmented reality and virtual reality (AR/VR) projects from students in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) and the Interaction Design (IxD) Program in the Division of Design, School of Art + Art History + Design.
At the intersection between CSE and IxD, Untethered displays work that is currently being or has recently been developed by students of Principal Lecturer Barbara Mones (CSE) and Associate Professor Axel Roesler (IxD).
Mones and Roesler intend the exhibition to be viewed as an experiment in progress, as a display of work that is ongoing and captured as a snapshot that points to the future. David Hunt and Natalie Burke, both from Unity Technologies, serve as consultants on the VR Projects. VR Projects were supported in part by the UW Reality Lab Studio. Staff member Sophia Baker also receives support from the Reality Lab Studio.
Immediately following the opening reception, Professor Thomas A. Furness will present a talk on creative approaches to the enormous potential of virtual reality. More information on this talk is available here.
