From the Archive: Through the Hololens

In 2016, the Cornish Design department continued its tradition of community partnerships with creative and technology industry leaders in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest by bringing Microsoft’s HoloLens to campus.

Cornish’s commitment to offering students hands-on experience working with innovative creative technology is a core practice on campus. Students had the opportunity to explore their creative practices through an interactive exhibit. The exhibit included student performances that were recorded on a 360° soundstage and rendered as holographic videos, as well as student animations and motion designs that were produced specifically for viewing on Microsoft’s HoloLens device.

The multi-reality exhibition was organized by Cornish Design faculty and showcased original creative work by Cornish students from the Dance, Design, and Theater departments.

The HoloLens is a pair of smart glasses for mixed reality (Microsoft’s approach to augmented reality) with multiple sensors, advanced optics, and holographic processing that melds seamlessly with its environment. It is developed and manufactured by Microsoft. HoloLens was the first head-mounted display running the Windows Mixed Reality platform under the Windows 10 computer operating system. HoloLens 2 launched on Nov. 7, 2019.
