posted: 15 06 2012

Deakin HDR student Gorkem Acaroglu wins the prestigious Australia Council Inter-Arts 2012-2013 Artlab, with MIXED REALITY PERFORMANCE LAB: CROSS-DISCIPLINARY RESEARCH LABS EXPLORING THE USE OF LIVE INTERACTIVE TECHNOLOGIES IN DRAMATIC THEATRE. The project is jointly hosted by the Deakin Motion.Lab and the Centre for Intelligent Systems Research.

This Artlab will research the limits and opportunities for using TECHNOLOGY AS SUBJECT in THEATRE, where the technology PERFORMS as an actor does in traditional theatre: examining the interface between bodies as subject and technologies as subject. Where the technology is capable of real-time spontaneous interaction with actors in dramatic theatre works.

The project is jointly hosted by the Deakin Motion.Lab and Deakin University's Centre for Intelligent Systems Research.
