I gave a brief panel presentation last month at the International Digital Media Arts Association conference about the notion of kinesthetic storytelling, the focus of my work in the MOVE Lab. Below are the slides from that talk. There were too videos shown that I am not including in this post.
Students are completing their Virtual Reality project, T1VR, for the Oculus Rift in the next two weeks. They are in the lab today recording voiceovers for the robot character in the animation.
Already they have won 2nd Place at WSU’s Student Undergraduate Research & Creative Activity (SURCA) showcase and participated in WSUV’s Research Showcase yesterday. They […]
On March 22, representatives from Microsoft Studios are visiting the MOVE Lab to see the VR and AR projects underway by faculty and students. We have prepared an impressive line up for this visit:
Motion Tracking/VR Projects, Dr. Dene Grigar Life Renewed: Mount St. Helens Science and Learning Center, Grigar & Greg Philbrook iSci: Interactive […]
The MOVE Lab gets a fresher look with the new logo created by CMDC junior Kate Palermini. Kate has been hired as the CMDC program’s media specialist for 2015-16 academic year and handles a variety of duties for the program, its faculty and students, from design work like this new logo to social media promotions.

For the past six months Greg Philbrook and I have worked to conceptualize my poem, Curlew, for an interactive, multimedia experience. It has been a pretty angst-less endeavor, thanks to Greg’s massive coding skills (as well as his DTC training training in multimedia design, I have to add) and artists who collaborated with us to […]
Here are a few photos from yesterday’s event.
Greg and I have been hard at work finishing Curlew in time for the OLE.01 Festival. We are making our deadlines with no trouble and by next Saturday, just in time for WSUV’s 25th Anniversary Celebration, we will have added the title sequence, the music, […]
We are pleased to announce that team-member, Amalia Vacca, was awarded one of the two Fuentes-Kirk Awards just announced at WSU. Vacca is working to develop the multimedia book (called an “AppBook”) that is for use by scholars and educators to produce an interactive, immersive environment for teaching scientific concepts relating to chemistry to students […]
The month of August proved to be a busy month for the MOVE Lab and demos of our projects. The Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce visited on August 1 as part of their WSUV tour. Following that demo on August 13 we hosted 24 legislative staffers from WA State representing both the House and Senate. […]
Work on iSci continues, but we stopped briefly last week to give a demonstration to the Seattle Chamber of Commerce who were visiting SWWA on a two-day tour of various sites where STEM research and activities were taking place. 30 people came to the MOVE lab to experience, firsthand, the work we are doing with […]
The MOVE (Motion Tracking, Virtual Environment) Lab is explores combining sensor-based physical computing with virtual and augmented reality technologies for education, business, communication, and art.
