Mixed Reality Technologies


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The goal of this module is to introduce the students to theories and methods of mixed reality technologies in relation to the creation of interactive or re-active narratives and performances that merge virtual and material spaces. The module is comprised of theoretical and practical courses and seminars that concern use of technologies for construction of performative environments and/or installations.


In connection with the module, courses may be offered within the following areas:

  • Mixed Reality Technologies
