This 4 class course will explore the lenses and output types within popular VR (virtual reality) rendering platforms. Participants will be introduced to a series of workflows using Blender – an open-source 3D rendering software engine – in order to output for VR. This course will cover introductory basics to stereoscopic imagery, panoramic imagery, app and web hosted content, mobile device visualization, rendering techniques and keyframing of multi-light for animation output.

Jonathan Carroll is a software artist who creates interactions for the narrative performances of the collective, Tough Guy Mountain. He makes work using Unity, Unreal, Blender, and various programming languages. Along with the collective, he runs the digital art incubator The Brandscape, at Dupont and Dufferin in Toronto.

Tough Guy Mountain is an ongoing project focusing on the glories, trials, and absurdity of late capitalism. As an artist collective of over a dozen members, TGM creates “total works of art”, presentations of capitalist aesthetic and consumer culture. TGM creates narrative performances where the collective plays a fantastical corporation that treats Art as another client.
