Science, Cinema and Immersive Environments
Jeffrey Shaw’s work has pushed the boundaries of art and cinema since 1974, merging interactive video, three dimensional visual environments and augmented reality installations. These ‘art works’ not only demonstrate the use of technology in art, but also explore some philosophical questions regarding our use of visualisations and how we inhabit our environments. Jye O'Sullivan (Dublin Institute of Technology) will provide an immersive introduction to understanding Shaw, art, and technology. With a splash of Heidegger’s philosophy on art & science, it will leave you with a new understanding of what cinema can be and what ‘expanded cinema’ can give us.
