What is it about?
We want to integrate games from different perspectives into the art and cultural landscape and initiate an exchange between science, game studios and cultural institutions.
With this in mind, four universities in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) have joined forces to establish the “Games Technology Network” (GTN), in which research institutions work together with industry and cultural partners to advance game development and game technologies. The GTN is funded by the state of NRW for two years period.
Our follow-up event “Technology in Art & Culture” is about discussing and experiencing the potential of game technologies in art and culture from different perspectives.
What can you expect?
- Input talk on the topic of technology in art and culture (AI, mixed reality, motion tracking)
- How to: funded projects – Using an existing project, we will explain how successful funded projects for the cultural landscape can be established between different actors.
- Innovative technologies from representatives from research and development in basic technologies such as computer graphics, human-computer interaction and simulation.
- Speed Dating – Project consultation
- Panel discussion: The opportunities and risks of immersive technologies in exhibition environments will be discussed by representatives from science, the game industry, art and the cultural landscape.
The event will take place in the Mirevi Lab at the University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf and is aimed at representatives from the fields of media and cultural studies, game development, artists, museums and related cultural institutions in the NRW region.
