Abstract

This panel will present the outcomes of a two-week residen- cy by a research team from the University of Brighton, School of Art and the University for the Creative Arts in September 2018 on the Mar Menor, a 170 km2 saltwater la- goon on the south east coast of Spain. The team were invited to undertake practice-based research on the changing eco- system of this unique natural landscape, resulting from dam- ages caused by intensive agriculture, increased tourism and rising sea levels. The project and panel has been developed by a team of three artists, each bringing specific experience and knowledge of 360° video to undertake the research and create a unique understanding and manifestation of the changing ecosystem of the Mar Menor. This includes Paul Sermon who is currently working on collocated telematic experiences in 360° live video environments, Charlotte Gould’s work on developing immersive 360° animated augmented reality and Jeremiah Ambrose who is working on gaze controlled navigation through 360° video narratives. The overarching aim of this project is to create a unique in- teractive 360° video experience of the Mar Menor that mani- fests the anthropocene effects on this natural landscape as augmented surreal and metaphysical interpretations of the artist’s experiences during the residency. Through environ- mental, social, economic and cultural observations and en- counters the team are creating an immersive 360° installa- tion environment that incorporates both video and audio re- cordings with augmented imaginary and predicted realities transformed from scientific data in obscure and profound guises.
