The University for the Creative Arts and the University of Greenwich are working in partnership to host the first Extended Senses & Embodying Technology Symposium, chaired by Camille Baker (University for the Creative Arts) and Ghislaine Boddington (University of Greenwich).
Selected artworks will be exhibited at the Stephen Lawrence Gallery. The exhibition will be from the 8th - 10th September.
The event will also feature a postgraduate student and early stage artist research workshop.
This cross-disciplinary symposium brings together research and practice which explore ways to extend and expand the body through new and emerging modalities and technologies. The event is comprised of a programme of presentations, discussion and exhibition investigating the intersection of technology and the arts, and the diverse landscape of specialities which emerge in the wake of this crossover. It focuses primarily on the body as a site of knowledge production within this field, especially work on immersion, haptic engagement and interfacing as key methodologies for understanding the bridge between the analogue and the digital. This includes, but is not limited to, electronic or smart textiles, research exploring multimodal interfaces and human-technology interaction, dance, theatre, music and other performance modes, as well all artistic and design work that engage with technology to translate different embodied senses and experiential sensations.
This will be held In person on the 8th - 9th September 2022 at the University of Greenwich, Greenwich Maritime campus in London and Online via Zoom.
