AGENDA


Virtual Fruits is an educational initiative run by Alex Anderson, Fabian Strunden and Paula Strunden since 2018. 

Together with students and immersive enthusiasts from all age groups, we create tactile mixed-reality environments and explore new forms of sensorial design.

In our workshops we mix cutting edge technologies with analogue drawing and DIY making tools. The participants outputs range from 360 stop-motion films to location-based VR installations to 3D printed virtual sketches and hand-crafted mixed-reality sculptures. 
As Associates of Store Alex and Paula deliver one-day VR/AR and MR workshops in London and abroad, teach summer schools, after-school-clubs, university courses and collaborate on bespoke projects with individuals and cultural institutions.
