Haptic Fish Tank R&D – End of Project Sharing
2-3pm, 21st October 2020
If you want to attend the online sharing, telling us why you interested, places are limited.
Over the last 9 months deaf-blind artist Finn has been collaborating with The Institute of Coding and the Disruptive Media Learning Lab at Coventry University to explore how haptic and immersive technology can enable him to experiment in new modes of storytelling.
Finn will share his perspective of how an artist with disabilities navigates making work with a tech team. They will provide insight into why making work with artists like Finn is important. Richard Lane, our developer on the project, will share a 1st stage iteration of the visuals, Michael Louziou will talk about the research in relation to co-design and the wider team will share how Covid-19 has steered the development of the R&D and Finn’s future vision for the project.
This mixed reality R&D has been convened by Deaf Explorer CIC, artist Finn who is deaf and partially sighted, Creative Producer Harmeet Chagger-Khan and collaborators from the Disruptive Media Learning Lab and Institute of Coding at Coventry University and has been supported with funding from Unlimited.
