Event Description

In the second phase of the UKIYO project collaboration, the DAP-Lab team (Brunel University) will reside in Tokyo and be guests in residence at Mixed Reality Lab, Hiyoshi Campus, Keio University, directed by Professor Adrian Cheok. There the researchers from Japan and Europe will spend several days investigating new approaches to 3d virtual reality and virtual movement design, and exchanging knowledge and methodologies. In the second half of the UKIYO research encounter, Johannes Birringer and his DAP team will meet some of the leading Japanese choreographers and digital artists interested in hybrid performance choreography, and they will work together from 9th to 12th December 2009. An international symposium is hosted by Keio University during this time frame, with an evening program of presentations and films.

In this open symposium, panel members will discuss the possibility of Networked Virtual Environment for choreography with mixed reality design. Leading Japanese artists and experimenters with interactive and virtual world design will discuss current projects and their aesthetic or scientific visions.

With the environment proposed by Johannes Birringer and DAP-Lab, participants of this research exchange project between Japan and the UK/Europe are producing the choreographic installation "Ukiyo" in 2009-2010. "Ukiyo" is a cross-cultural networked collaboration for the digital live arts of the next generation.

Ok... just le me know...
Comment by Johannes Birringer on December 5, 2009 at 10:01pm
yes, possibly. I have not been at the G-Sec Lab yet, where the Open Meeting is held, so i will check network situation etc. One issue with these things is always that we are presenting, so i cannot make the live broadcast myself but would need a volunteer. Secondly, you need to take into account the enormous time difference to the west (north America is 15 or more hours behind, continental Europe 9 or 10 hours). let us check out the situations here with our hosts, and then i get back to you. ciao, Johannes
