Tool for Creating in the 4th Dimension – a new online course beginning this month – offers an introduction to the next generation of media including Holograms, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Lenticular Images, Autostereo, Volumetric Images, 3D Projection Mapping, and Pepper’s Ghost. The instructor is Linda Law, a digital/holographic artist, writer, educator, and consultant.

The eight-session online course will have weekly two-hour classes, which will take a detailed look at these new media tools.

From these classes you will build a base of knowledge that will enable you to make appropriate and educated decisions for your own use or for your clients.”
