Interactive Sound and Visual Installation Workshop

A two day workshop with additional lab time is being held at Gray Area, allowing Bay Area artists and technologists to program works for the Immersive Lab with support from its creators.

It functions both as a space for experiential learning and creation and as an audiovisual installation for the general public

At the Zurich University of the Arts’ Institute of Computer Music and Sound Technology (ICST), researchers have developed a physical space which integrates panoramic video and surround audio with full touch interaction. This media space is called ‘Immersive Lab,’ and from November to December it will be installed at Gray Area.

The ICST’s ‘Immersive Lab’ is a temporary installation of a physical media space, a kind of playable media instrument,  at Gray Area. Though the name is similar to our ten-week education program,  the ICST ‘Immersive Lab’ is a different opportunity.
