The 3rd International AR and VR Conference in Manchester

Had a very insightful day at The 3rd International AR and VR Conference in Manchester. I particularly enjoyed Professor Richard Koeck’s presentation: Inhabiting the Image of the City, exploring how digital technologies surround and invade our space both public and private, and his discourse on Spectators or Actors – which resonates with me through my fascination with Augusto Boal‘s invisible theatre.

I’m still digesting ideas from the day, particularly my experience on the HTC Vive, where I went into the void, i.e. I used the experience in a way it wasn’t designed for and enjoyed imprinting my imagination in the ‘digital’ space I found myself in (gallery below).

There are some conference presentations on the MMU website and the programme is here.
