Extended Senses & Embodying Technology Symposium and Exhibition 2022

  • 8th Sept - 10th Sept 2022
  • Stephen Lawrence Gallery, Project Space

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. This is a network gathering of artists, creative industry experts and academics investigating and exchanging knowledge on the current state of the intersection between our embodiment, our senses and the technologies of today.

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, focusing 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.

This Symposium and Exhibition is part of knowledge exchange activities from the School of Design and the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences, University of Greenwich.
