A hybrid gathering with both real workshops, installations and digital lectures!
Immersive Days #1 is both a network and a new annual gathering of professional artists, curators, researchers, technicians, teachers and students within a broad field of immersive technologies and (artistic) practices. The initiative functions as a continuation of several symposiums, workshops and research into immersive technologies in art.
We meet up to share, explore and playtest XR and immersive sound projects, often works in progress. We give feedback to each other and we share experiences and challenges. The aim is to build a strong collaborative platform, where we help and support each other. And then we try to investigate and map some of the latest technological and artistic developments within the fields of extended reality and spatial sound.
