The design world consists of 4 domains - 2D is graphic design; 3D is product design; 4D is design of spaces and places; and 5D is the design of immersive experiences. Now there is a group and conference for those interested in the 5D world of immersive design.
5D | The Future of Immersive Design is the visionary, international conference for all designers, practitioners and students working in the fields of narrative media like movies, TV, video games and theme parks.
Digital technologies are blurring the boundaries between the creative and interactive experience of visual art, entertainment, environmental design and the built environment. For all those engaged in the visual processes of world-building and storytelling in narrative media, 5D is the platform for exploring the present and future of immersive design, and its impact on all aspects of trans-media space. 5D identifies and unites a vital community of designers and image-makers while serving as a catalyst for innovation.
Keynote speakers include Shekhar Kapur (right): film director, producer, adventurer and poet, and Jeff Kipnis: preeminent architectural critic, theorist and designer who will open up the conference with their discussion, "CHAOS and MISBEHAVIOR".
The conference will take place at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center at California State University, October 8-9, 2010. Presented by the University Art Museum (UAM) at California State University, Long Beach and the Art Directors Guild (ADG), this international conference assembles the design world’s leading pioneers and academics in an open exchange of ideas and insights about new design processes within the entertainment industry and the delivery of the immersive experience.
