In this talk Duncan Speakman will present some new methods for understanding how people experience immersive artworks. Focusing on journeys through physical environments he will explain how ‘time geography’ can be really useful for anyone designing experiential works for audiences. Through sharing some of his own recent works Duncan will also offer some provocations around how sound and augmented reality might offer us new insights and responses to climate collapse.
