TRIBECA TALKS: MASTER CLASS 60 Minutes
FILM GUIDE TRIBECA TALKS: MASTER CLASS - VR PIONEER JARON LANIER
Depending on who you ask, Jaron Lanier either coined or popularized the term “virtual reality”. This computer scientist, author, and composer has been involved in both the industry and theory of virtual worlds for decades. As founder of one of the very first VR companies, VPL Research, Lanier led the team that developed the first VR Goggles as well as the legendary Data Glove. Known for his creative approach to the intersection between technology and the arts, Lanier exhibits a depth of knowledge and artistic freedom that keeps him in demand as a speaker. Most recently, Jaron has published the highly acclaimed Dawn of the New Everything: Encounters with Reality and Virtual Reality -- part personal memoir and part rumination on VR. For this masterclass, Lanier will speak about his prolific career and share his thoughts on the present and future of Virtual Reality as a medium.
