November 8th, 6-8pm
Join Umber Magazine
and the Heath Newsstand for a conversation exploring Virtual Reality: its relationship to craft, design, and communication. To start, we’re dusting off an article from Umber’s Tactile Relationship Issue, illuminating the connection between designed reality and physical reality — how it impacts identity, and the manifestation of self — where it adds value and where its technology falls short.
Anthropologist and VR-expert, Monika Jo joins Mike Nicholls, Umber’s Founder, in conversation with Heath’s Experience Design Manager, as we demystify Virtual Reality and consider its current and future applications in the realm of physical experience — all this with a design and manufacturing slant, of course. We'll have VR headsets for you to try out, too.
