About the series
The Brown Institute is pleased to announce the launch of Volumetric Reporting, supported by a Provost Teaching and Learning Grant for Emerging Technology, a seminar and training series that will explore the affordances of volumetric capture and its applications in journalism. The series will begin with talks by Francesca Panetta, formerly of The Guardian and the MIT Advanced Virtuality Lab, and Shourideh C. Molavi of Forensic Architecture — who will introduce applications of volumetric capture for reporting and storytelling. Talks will be followed by two workshops introducing students to the technology and then creating 3D spaces from images using photogrammetry.
