From spatialised sound to augmented reality overlays, emerging technologies give developers, creatives and performers new ways to blend physical and virtual worlds. However, to fulfil their potential in terms of use, design and implementation, we need to explore immersive experiences from multiple perspectives and in different domains.

While significant investment is being made in a range of platforms to deliver immersive experiences, we want to enable bold, interdisciplinary thinking around future content, tools, services and applications. If the potential of immersion is to be fully realised in new markets and emergent forms of cultural experience, bridges between arts and digital technology, marketplace and research, need to be built.

Immersion prototypes
Immersion showcase

From ambient technologies, fulldome, projection mapping, sound, performance, VR, AR, mixed reality and beyond the SWCTN Immersion showcase looks to celebrate the brave, ethical and innovative uses of technologies developed through the Networks Prototype and Immersion Fellowship programme.

We invite you into a journey of immersion, smashing together deep thinking research and newly developed R&D prototypes to look beyond the constraints of the field to open up new language and approaches.
