Nerd Nite Seattle : On your mark, get (head)set, go!
We’re thrilled to have the first winner of the #NerdNiteSeattleFund present at this month’s event! Scott Bennett will give a presentation about the concepts and processes behind his project “WORLD ONE,” a virtual reality art experience. We will have a VR headset available so that attendees can explore the massive, abstract paintscapes that Scott created using the virtual reality painting program Tilt Brush (tiltbrush.com) and the 3D game engine Unity 3D (unity3d.com)
Scott Bennett (aka Scobot) creates immersive and interactive art in virtual reality. Combining years of professional experience in painting, sculpture, and video art with game engine technology, his work allows viewers to explore and experience abstract compositions through virtual reality hardware. The Pacific Science Center (Seattle, WA) licensed his work for display and he is Artist-in-Residence at the University of Washington’s UW CoMotion Labs where he creates virtual reality artwork alongside AR/VR startups.
