Abstract

We will be conducting experimentation with ceramics and a virtual reality headset. The Oculus Rift is a cutting edge piece of equipment worn by an artist on their face with sensors attached to their hands to manipulate objects in virtual reality that would not be feasible by traditional methods. The Oculus Rift gives the artist a tactile sensation while manipulating the model which can closely mimic handling actual clay and enable modifications that are not feasible through traditional methods. This is an important addition to our expanding digital ceramics lab. This project will result in creating 3D prints of student’s objects. Learning to use this virtual reality headset will advance our skills in digital ceramics, expand our technical vocabulary, and create more innovative options for ceramics students.
