Visiting Scholar Anthony Rowe
– founding member of international award winning Digital Arts collective Squidsoup
– talks about his extraordinary new work Submergence
, the Ocean of Light project – and how to prepare for infestations of Mixed Reality Bugs…
Anthony Rowe is founder and creative lead at Squidsoup, an international group of artists, designers and researchers working with digital media, light and interaction. Squidsoup’s work explores the boundaries of the physical and the virtual, looking to create immersive and engaging experiences, often taking the form of interactive installations.
Anthony’s talk will focus primarily on Ocean of Light,
a five year research project that uses volumetric arrays of lights to visualize digital media in physical 3D space, but he’ll also be touching on various projects Squidsoup have produced since 1997 – including the recent Living Timeline
Don’t miss the latest Ocean of Light artwork
– a breathtaking walkthrough environment using over 8,000 points of light to create a hybrid responsive space.
Submergence is open to the public in Bristol next to Temple Meads station and the Creative Commons space - only until 13 October.
