Re-imagining Human Building Interaction

Start: Feb 6, 2019 5:30:00 PM
End: Feb 6, 2019 7:30:00 PM

The talk will explore the notion of ‘interaction space’ in the built environment and outline how, through the introduction of novel digital technologies, new modes of interactions emerge, where the attention and scale between “artefact” and “environment” shift. Augmenting it, or potentially disrupting it, with a variety of digital possibilities, in particular the ones that have the capacity to alter senses and or facilitate interactive, whole body, immersive and sensorial experience. These possibilities invite us to rethink the new resulting space of interaction. There will be a brief overview and then time for reflection with the audience on what this would mean for shared encounters when mediated through networked urban displays. 

Enhancing engagement with cultural heritage collections using 3D digital technologies

Start: Feb 26, 2019 5:30:00 PM
End: Feb 26, 2019 6:30:00 PM

This talk will discuss the challenges and opportunities created by the availability of 3D technologies for enhancing the engagement of diverse audiences with cultural heritage collections. It will present research in the development of novel computational tools and workflows which involve technologies such as 3D digitisation, visual analysis, Virtual Reality (VR) and 3D printing of heritage artefacts. Using an interdisciplinary approach, these developments have been done in collaboration between heritage organisations, communities, artists and technical experts, including local institutions such as the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery.
