About this event

This course will cover the unique capabilities/constraints of AR, the current AR landscape (technologies/tools), as well as AR design principles (including visual design, interaction design, and audio design.) We will also cover the workflow, best practices, and how to go about building and learning in an emergent field. This course is designed for everyone, but may be especially helpful for folks working in another creative field. About the instructor: Heather Dunaway Smith is an award-winning interactive artist that blends storytelling, illustration, animation, sound design, and interaction design into immersive art experiences. After a childhood spent in the theater (performing and playwriting), she became interested in blurring the line between art and audience, by creating experiences where the participant is the protagonist. After receiving her B.A. in Interactive Multimedia from Columbia, she began working with a diverse range of clients, from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies (Snap, Adobe, Meta, Harley Davidson, The Art Institute of Chicago, Highlights), on a wide range of projects, including websites, apps, mobile games, immersive museum exhibits, and AR/VR artworks. In 2020, she was awarded an AR artist residency at Adobe. In 2021, she became a Snap partner and began designing and developing experiences for their AR glasses, the Next Spectacles. Her art has been exhibited around the globe (Paris, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, Vancouver, Denver, and Portland) and, in 2022, she curated and produced the AR Art Gallery at Adobe MAX.
