︎︎︎ ‘This symposium comes out of a collaboration between the X10DD Senses Laboratory research group at the University for the Creative Arts and the School of Design at the University of Greenwich.

This inter-disciplinary Symposium and Exhibition bring together practice-led research from the cultural and creative industries sectors to explore ways of extending and expanding the body through new and emerging modalities and technologies, but with the body as the primary site of knowledge production... Running alongside the Symposium in the Stephen Lawrence Gallery and Project Space we present the Extended Senses Exhibition, showcasing a range of diverse innovative creative works emerging from within this crossover, focussing primarily on our living bodies as the key site of knowledge production. Explorations within immersion, haptic engagement and body interfacing are included, showing key methodologies for our future understanding of the hybrid blending of the virtual and the physical.

Artworks include interactive installations, VR and AR experiences, digital video, animation, films and an online performance, together creating innovative interactions of the body with sound, light and image’.

Thank you to co-chairs Professor of Interactive and Immersive Arts Camille Baker and Reader in Digital Immersion Ghislaine Boddington, alongside Lead Producer Tadej Vindiš (body>data>space) for being a forward-thinking and inclusive team to work with.
