Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2015) (EVA)
Electronic Visualisation and the Arts
7 & 9 July 2015
At the University of Applied Sciences Mainz, Prof. Michael Orthwein initiated in 2008, a consecutive sequence of courses under the common name: “Beyond the Screen” which are being offered within the Time-Based Media degree program. In this series of project-based courses new strategies and new approaches towards visualisation of content are being developed aiming at experimental and applied visual content-scenarios for museums while focusing on possible levels of immersion within Stereo-Surround, Virtual and Augmented-Reality environments. The development and implementation of a mobile, stereoscopic surround-projection-unit during the “Mainz-Science City” initiative in 2011 allowed the students to design, develop, test and present various visualisation scenarios in cooperation with the Museums in Mainz.
