Virtual/Augmented Art (Pinterest Board)
For the Wisconsin/Milwaukee Virtual Art class and Columbia Chicago's Machinima class, I had students create conceptual avatars, environments for them, and create moving narratives around the whole.  Above are Luke Kohler's impression of London during the Blitz in Second Life, and Derek Delloro's exported Mac Classic from Minecraft.  The classes created movies from Second Life and objects from Minecraft, and even used the Minecraft models as Augmented Reality subjects in the Milwaukee landscape using Aurasma.  Passing back and forth between the virtual and physical has consistently been very popular with the students.
