OPEN MEETING/SYMPOSIUM: December 9
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.
