New media, art, science and technology come together in the New Media New Technology Open Lab Expo, by creative researchers from the Media Technology MSc programme, hosted by Quartair. The Open Lab will not be a static expo, more a playful research space that mixes scientific approaches to art with creative approaches to science, for all audiences.
The researchers work from personal inspiration and curiosity and create physical works to explore their concepts or engage the visitor to evoke ideas or questions. Many installations are interactive, some are early studies and prototypes, others will be more polished end products. The makers will be around to discuss the concepts, inspiration, ideas and methods behind their work, and even hack some more on the fly.
