Fox Fridays: Worldbuilding- Living Landscapes
During this two-day workshop we will practice worldbuilding in the virtual realm using Blender and Unity Game Engine to recontextualize and interact with an existing site and narrative. Think of this virtual world as a mode to renavigate, situate, enact and simulate your approximation of reality.
