Our partners in Tampere University have received fundig for two projects that include remote technology, MAGICS: National Infrastructure for human virtualization and remote presence (in collaboration with Helsinki University of Arts) and Live + Digital Audiences: The future of culture’s powerhouses (LiDiA).

MAGICS:

Helsinki University of arts focuses on measuring and digitizing human activity; TAU for multimodal bodily interaction, game cultures, visual information presentation, and visual building digital worlds; Uniarts illuminates this whole from an artistic perspective. In collaboration with their industry partners, they research and develop shared digital spaces and remote presence.

LiDiA:

LiDiA rebuilds the preconditions and possibilities of the performing arts: Its artistic work and research boldly follow the view that the sustainable and secure future of large audiences arises only from the hybrid operation of cultural powerhouses, small and medium-sized event houses and producers. Hybrid art simultaneously reaches an immediate, physical experience with international, virtual audiences.
