Digital Encounters

Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition


Digital Encounters presents a Pier-side showcase of current interactive artworks by Professor Paul Sermon and his PhD students Jeremiah Ambrose and Jane Frances Dunlop from the School of Art at the University of Brighton, with performed contributions from Ann Light, Professor of Design and Creative Technology at the University of Sussex. These digital encounters explore augmented presence, telematic touch and virtual reality experiences in four secluded booths located in Horatio’s Bar on Brighton Pier. Presented akin to Edwardian scientific experiments, they become analogous to how the technologies of film, illusion and clairvoyance first appeared in amusement arcades and attractions on seaside piers. This event represents a panel-conversation between the participants taking part in the form of interactive experiences that will connect and inform creative arts and science themes concerning the body, virtual space, augmentation, performance, and identity, providing participation for an audience of all ages and interests.
