Immersive Histories: Dam Busters - Designing a historically accurate immersive experience.
Immersive Histories: Dam Busters is an immersive virtual reality prototype allowing audience to experience the famous ‘Dam Busters’ raid from a new and unique perspective. Join us and Studio resident Olie Kay to hear…
The experience surrounds the audience with a physical set, which in conjunction with virtual reality visuals, spatialised audio and haptic feedback completely transports audiences to the skies above the Möhne dam in 1943, aboard an Avro Lancaster bomber.
Olie Kay from All Seeing Eye will present an informal talk around the process of researching and prototyping the work thus far, and share some of the remaining questions and ambitions for the project. Audiences will also have the opportunity to experience the prototype after the talk.
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.
