Rosie Poebright is a digital artist, a storyteller and real-world game designer. She works with a powerful mix of ingredients to design her experiences - most importantly audience agency, interactivity and embodiment. As Creative Director of Splash & Ripple: “Architects of Extraordinary Adventures” she makes experiences that transport people from their normal everyday lives to an extraordinary space where they can play with new ways of thinking, feeling and being.   

She is currently working on the R&D for an audio real-world experience called 'Empath' which gives audiences the chance to step into someone else's life and walk around in it. The process has thrown up questions on vulnerability and feeling safe enough to be creative, as well as how to enable vulnerable people to share their stories.

An account from the inside of a journey to make work that's raw and truthful while staying sane. From someone who's not there yet.

This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.

Do you want to find out what is going on at the Pervasive Media Studio? Are you interested in meeting our residents, talking about a specific project or curious about pervasive media? Why not pack a sandwich and join us for one of our Lunchtime Talks and Open Studio Friday.

Lunchtime Talks are informal presentations by Studio residents and associates. They normally take place at 1pm on Friday, are free and open to everybody who’s interested in what we do.

After the Talk, we also invite you to stay with us for the afternoon to continue the conversation or work on your own projects. We provide chairs, tables, wireless and a great space. You bring what you need to work with (laptop/mobile). Our open afternoons close at 5pm.

Let us know if you’d like a tour of the space and we'll be happy to show you around just before the talk. Send an email to to book your place on a tour.
