7 May 2020, 10:00am to 29 May 2020, 5:00pm
Change your Space Using Hand-made Clay and Augmented Reality (Suitable for adults and children aged 8+, adult supervision recommended for ages 8-12)
Learn how to make your own clay from garden soil, make a sculpture and then learn 3D scanning and AR (augmented reality), with artist Kristin Luke.
You’ll use the app Qlone to create a virtual version of your sculpture, which you can place in unexpected parts of your house! This tutorial combines the most ancient and current technologies to re-imagine your space, which perhaps will provide a brief escape from the confines of quarantine, without having to leave your home.
Augmented Reality, or AR, is technology that enables you to see ‘real life’ images and computer generated images simultaneously. For example, you can look at something using the camera on your smartphone or tablet device, and see computer graphics superimposed on top of reality. The best example of this is the online game Pokemon Go, where players try to find computer generated creatures around their real life location.
Kristin’s step by step videos will teach you all the skills you need. You can then send your finished work for us to share on MOSTYN’s website and social media.
