Artist talk: Professor Simon Biggs

Stills from studio development, Cherryville, Australia, 2018.
Simon Biggs: 'Manifolds' is a fully immersive, physically interactive, three-dimensional digital projection environment. The artwork explores how the interactor (performer in, or viewer of, the interactive work) can experience a shift in their sense of physical presence in the space. Specifically, the work allows the interactor to gain a sense of their presence in the work as a form of haptic torque and a sense of extension of their body through multiple interactors

New media artist Simon Biggs will be giving an artist's talk from 9am-10am next Monday 26th March in the Riddell lab, upstairs in the Peter Karmel building. All are welcome.

Simon Biggs is a new media artist, writer and curator with interests in digital poetics, interactive, auto-generative and affective systems, interdisciplinary research and co-creation across the creative arts, humanities and physical sciences.
