JD Institute of Fashion Technology, Bangalore invited a Czech artist Mr. Vitek Škop, to conduct a workshop on Augmented Reality in terms of Design for the students of Fashion, Interior and Jewellery Department on 19th November 2019 at the Brigade road campus.
Mr. Škop is an alumnus of, ‘The Academy of Arts, Architecture, and Design’, Prague. His professional repertoire includes working in London and New York along with the creation of Vivid books. It brings augmented reality into Physics textbooks that contain 47 animations copying the standardized education plan. Project Vivid books aims to make Science studies easier for children through augmented reality and has been adopted by several schools in Europe. The Vivid books project was selected by the curator of the London Design Week Festival to represent The Academy of Art, Architecture, and Design, Prague. It was exhibited in the famous Brompton district, close to the Victoria and Albert museum.
