Lunchtime Talks

Talk + Live stream

Please note: This event took place in July 2022

In this talk Hemma Philamore and Adrienne Hart will discuss Neon Dance and Bristol Robotics Lab's collaboration Prehension Blooms, which is a live performance work that also considers remote audience members, by providing access to creative spaces using robot avatars.

Hemma and Adrienne will demonstrate their robots in the making, which feature in the performance work, and discuss plans for using tele-operation in a live performance context; enabling live and remote audiences to come together.

Neon Dance is an internationally renowned company that embraces a diverse and digital population; a place where artists, partners and people can engage in experiences that are experimental and original, yet accessible to all.

Bristol Robotics Laboratory is the most comprehensive academic centre for multi-disciplinary robotics research in the UK. It is a collaborative partnership between the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) and the University of Bristol, and home to a vibrant community of over 450 academics, researchers and industry practitioners.

Open Studio Fridays

From 10:00 - 17:00 you can stay at the Studio for Open Studio Fridays - join us to continue the conversation or work on your own projects. The Studio provides chairs, tables, wireless and a great space. You bring what you need to work with (laptop/mobile). Tell us what you’re up to, or allow us to facilitate conversations within the resident community. Studio staff and residents will be around to chat, answer questions, or tell you more about what we do. The open afternoons close at 17:00, sometimes with a trip to the Café & Bar.

Where to find us

The Lunchtime Talks take place in the Pervasive Media Studio, which is in Watershed. The Studio is just beyond the Café & Bar, turn right and then go down the corridor to your left (where the toilets are). The double doors here will be open, go all the way down until you reach the Studio. A member of staff will sign you in, and check your ticket, if you have booked.
