About this event

Veteran experience designer and King’s artist-in-residence Rob Morgan, of London-based immersive AR design studio Playlines will discuss how to find, design, and create access to immersive narratives in ordinary places. Drawing on his recent work for King's and the National Gallery, Rob will provide an overview and grounding in AR and spatial immersive narrative formats, explore the counter-intuitive design of immersive experiences set in the real world, and provide inspiration for attendees to create or surface their own spatial/AR narratives using low-budget tools.
