Event description

Description

Digital Catapult and the Open Data Institute (ODI) conclude a series of events that delve into the relationship between arts and technology, with an interactive workshop event exploring immersive (virtual, augmented and mixed reality) and future networks technologies (such as 5G and the internet of things).

How does an increasingly hybrid environment - where ‘physical’ and ‘virtual’ realities are increasingly indistinguishable - affect interpersonal relationships, our sense of responsibility, empathy, who and what we care about?

Closing the gaps invites artists, content makers and industry experts to respond to this evolution of technology and the role it will play in our lives, examining how the online and offline worlds are coming closer together and what social, philosophical, corporeal and emotional challenges, and benefits, arise.

The Hybrid Landscapes exhibition is curated and produced by Data as Culture at the ODI.
