Make It Immersive - NYC
This summer, Adobe held its first creative summit on immersive media and AR technology, where we delved into the future of this evolving and exciting genre.
We invited 19 artists in the fields of photography, illustration, film, and 3D/immersive to learn how to create experiences in Adobe Aero. In addition, Adobe FrescoAdobe Dimension and beta versions of unreleased applications were demonstrated for artists to use for content creation. 

The roster of artists included:
Jesse Ayala 
Sisa Bueno
Kervin Brisseaux
Sam Brewton
Sam Cannon 
Sougwen Chung
Reese Donohue
Wendy Fok 
Xin Liu
Kristin Lucas
Jon Noorlander 
Gemma O'Brien
Tony Patrick
Elana Schlenker
Victoria Siemer
Kate Stevenson
Jing Wei
Zipeng Zhu

After a whirlwind round of presentations by our talented Adobe designers, product managers, and keynote speakers like Marjan Moghaddam and Jon Han, we gave these artists a challenge: to leverage the New York City theater as their inspiration to "set the stage" for their Adobe Aero experience.
