XR Art & Networking 2024

The annual event by AURORA XR School for Artists, HTW Berlin

The fifth XR Art & Networking Event will take place on June 26, 2024, from 1 to 6 pm at HTW Berlin. As every year, it will feature inspiring short talks, a coffee truck right by the Spree River, artistic XR projects, and plenty of time for conversations!

Talks will be held in English.

The focus lies on three topics and we are very pleased that we could win excellent speakers for two of them:

ARTISTIC RESEARCH – In this context, Dr. Marlene Bart will give a talk. She will also present her VR work »Theatrum Radix« as part of her artistic research.

ANALOG HAPTICS – The haptic sense has so far been little integrated into XR experiences. Based on initial ideas, we would like to reflect with you on the possibilities of integrating haptic perception in mixed reality.

AUTONOMOUS AVATARS – Interactions with avatars start with verbal communication, but is there more to it? AI researchers Xenia Klinge and Dr. Tanja Schneeberger from DFKI will share their thoughts on this topic.

The program also includes a workshop titled »Autonomous Avatars in XR Art & Culture« with Xenia Klinge and Dr. Tanja Schneeberger, featuring discussion and brainstorming in the context of the latest research on artificial intelligence – and a a workshop on »Analogue Haptics« with the artists Nadine Kolodziey and Jens Isensee focusing mixed and augmented reality.
