A Laboratory for Live and Interactive Art & Technology

Art.on.Wires is an open laboratory for live and interactive art where researchers, engineers and practitioneers from various fields collaborate to explore and create a new generation of media technology for artistic performances and mixed-reality spaces.

We invite choreographers, dancers, singers, actors, musicians, composers, DJs, VJs, visual artists, programmers, set designers, light engineers, sound engineers and interested researchers to join our laboratory.

The four-day event will feature workshops on artistic programming tools and interactive technologies, dorkbot talks and experimental performances. Art.on.Wires takes place in an old industry hall which will be equipped with interactive technologies to serve as a space for artistic and scientific experimentation.

Our main topics are Space and Interaction
. Artistically we are interested in interactions with smart performance spaces and interactions between people in remote networked performance spaces. On the engineering side issues of interest are the integration of Vision, Sound and Motion technologies into a local space to enable remote and mixed-reality interactions.
