Finnish Pavilion project receives funding from Media Factory

Last semester our project received a grant from Media Factory that will enable us to continue working on the development of the virtual reality installation of the Pavilion. With these funds we have so far been able to give a course about Unity software. This is the new program that will be used for rendering the 3D model and also for developing a new interaction and interface for the installation.

We have hired Mikko Hovi to work on the model and Tommi Hortana to work on porting the Pavilion into Unity. Also we are collaborating with the Media Technology Department at the School of Science and Technology.

In addition, this semester we are hosting a series of lectures in conjunction with our other project on the virtual reality reconstruction of the Vrouw Maria. I will list the lectures this semester on a separate post.
