First EXPLORE session in the E11 Studio: Oculus Quest Virtual Reality and Tilt Brush by Google

Thursday 6th February, 4pm to 6pm. Drop-in at any point.

Oculus Quest is an all-in-one system built for virtual reality. You can now play almost anywhere with just a VR headset and controllers. It is not just for gaming though, it is also a creative tool for applications such as Tilt Brush. Tilt Brush lets you paint in 3D space with virtual reality and upload your creations to the web. Your room is your canvas. Your palette is your imagination. The possibilities are endless.

We have several Oculus Quest headsets in E11 and this session will enable to you try out the Tilt Brush application for yourself. Have a look at the Tilt Brush Artist in Residence examples to see what is possible.

If you’d like to drop by please let us know in advance so we can be ready with enough tea, coffee and biscuits!

EXPLORE drop in sessions take place at:

E11 Studio, Edinburgh Napier University, Merchiston Campus, 10 Colinton Road, Edinburgh EH10 5DT.

E11 – a new Creative Informatics Studio at Edinburgh Napier University opens its doors.

This month we are launching a brand new Creative Informatics workshop and events space at Edinburgh Napier University’s Merchiston campus! E11 will be a base for CI Studios events in 2020 and beyond, offering a range of informal workshops, events and drop in sessions for individuals working in the creative industries who would like to experiment with, and explore the potential of, digital and data-driven technologies in a friendly and supportive environment.

To mark the opening of E11, we are holding an Open Studio event on Wednesday the 4th of December. Book your ticket here

There will also be an opportunity to try out cutting edge creative technology, such as 3D creation tools for virtual reality, responsive sound and audio, immersive 360 degrees video, interactive lighting, and sensor driven robots!

If you are a creative business or individual based in Edinburgh or South East Scotland (Fife, the Lothians and the Borders), please come along to find out more about our plans and tell us how you would like to use E11, over some drinks and nibbles.

Going forward, CI Studio events will take place at E11 and in venues in and around Edinburgh and South East Scotland, providing opportunities for creative practitioners of all disciplines to try out emerging technologies that could inspire and inform new ways of working for the creative industries. We also hope that you will tell us how you might like to use the space in 2020 and how exploring and experimenting with digital technology might inspire, and inform new creative work? How might a tactile, analogue, material-based creative practice for example be informed by intangible, digital and immaterial technology? What is Virtual Reality and how can it be applied in a creative way? How could immersive video be utilised by creative practitioners who work for a creative practice? These are just some of the questions that CI Studios will explore.

Please join us on the 4th of December if you can, otherwise, we look forward to seeing you at one of our CI Studio events in 2020.

We look forward to meeting/seeing you!
Inge Panneels, Ingi Helgason, Michael Smyth, Oli Mival and the rest of the Creative Informatics team.
