Course description
Digital Dioramas
With Ana Nicolaescu & Sebastian Tiew

In the 19th century, the diorama was a three-dimensional model that aimed to replicate a scene or moment in time. In Greek, the word “diorama” literally means “through that which is seen.” This course would like to consider that the construction of a virtual environment or set today is analogous to that of a diorama. Moving beyond its traditionally understood definition, the aim of this course is to use its very concepts and principles to create a freeze a moment in time through the application of emerging technologies and tools.
