Stockholm 14-16 March at the EIT ICT Labs Presence Lab at KTH
This first workshop explores the concept of place in relation to Mediating Presence.
It will take place in Stockholm 14-16 March and includes the launch of the EIT ICT Labs Presence Lab, a disused reactor hall on KTH campus.
The first workshop day focuses on the theoretical body of knowledge relating to shared mediated spaces, while the following days are devoted to prototyping in the Presence Lab. You can find a draft agenda here, on the project testbed: http://www.being-here.net/page/5515/en
In the workshop, theoretical engagement is interwoven with rapid prototyping. A special focus will be given to the concept of transparency, and to the role of immateriality in mediating presence. Invited guest speakers will contribute to this topic and discuss its relation to innovative glass craft and artistic research.
The number of participants at the workshop is limited. If you have related research interests and would like to contribute, please send an introductory email to Charlie
Gullström and Caroline Nevejan by 15 February and we will let you know if we can offer you a place at the workshop.
