Series: CityLIS 'AfterHours' Research Seminar Series

Abstract

Immersive art works are part of the growing experience economy. Participatory performances, locked rooms, and interactive gaming offer new(ish) opportunities to immerse people in imaginary worlds that can technology can facilitate. The immersion is enhanced when the experiences become incorporated into everyday reality, where fact and fiction merge into a live experience.

Joseph will explore the immersive qualities of information and how this is expanding the means by which art works can be experienced.
