Immersive Days #1
Exploring and playtesting XR and immersive sound projects
8 June 2021 - 13 June 2021

A hybrid gathering with both real meetings, installations and digital events!

Immersive Days 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.

  • VR installations by Lundahl & Seitl and Vibeke Bryld & Elin Maria Jacobsson
  • Performances by Lunda hl & Seitl and Tim Bishop
  • Workshops by Mirabelle Jones, Francis Brady and Tim Bishop
  • Lectures by Lundahl & Seitl, Martelli & Gibson, Alessandro Perini, Paolo Thorsen-Nagel, Maren Dagny Juell, Celcius Projects and Bombina Bombast

The discursive programme with artist talks, lectures and workshops/discussions are held primarily digital and will take place between June 10-13.

Open Tuesday to Sunday, 12-17 (TBC)
