Event description

Description

You’re invited to hear students, researchers, and external partners present on their experiences in the 2017 Ars Electronica Futurelab Academy @ QUT, the highlight being showing their works in the world’s premiere media arts festival, the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria.


The Ars Electronica Futurelab Academy QUT is a community of students, researchers, staff, and external partners working together across the domains of art, technology, and society. This year, QUT staff worked in partnership with a Futurelab producer in residence to guide the community through a co-creative process of ideation, development and production of a series of media art works:

* Synapsense, a performative installation that creates an exploratory environment through movement, touch, and soundscape.

* 1:1, a live performance that pairs a human and a robot camera onstage as a collaboration of equals.

* Teaching City, a series of playful interventions that subvert and disrupt expectations of the city and offer a window into contemporary issues.


In addition to the academy works, the overall QUT presence at the festival included researchers from the education faculty and creative industries. Guerrilla Knowledge Unit (Education Faculty) ran a series of children’s workshops, and associate director of QUT Creative Lab Keith Armstrong presented Eremocene (Age of Loneliness) in the festival program.

Expressions of interest for participation in the 2018 Academy are now open to students and researchers. If you’d like to be a part of the experience next year, this is a great opportunity to a chat to this year’s crew and find out what it’s all about.
