Design and production of real-time 3D interactive experiences like video games or virtual reality are often considered relatively automated processes. But behind the making of these virtual experiences there are creative men and women with highly honed skills – a sort of “digital craftsmanship” that will be discussed in this talk through the example of the “Colossus of Venice”, the virtual reality guide (specially created for Homo Faber) taking visitors through the complex worlds of three exceptional artisans: the hard-stone inlayer, the automaton maker and the enameller.
