Field of View: Emotion

We live in an era of booming interest in new media technologies, and the possibilities and powers of these new tools in the hands of creative thinkers appear limitless. Driven by the enthusiasm of a deeply engaged community of creators, researchers, and developers, emerging media technologies are undergoing rich experimentation. The result is a compelling convergence of art, science and technology. In this series, we’ll explore emerging media technologies at this key moment by showcasing cutting-edge work using a wide spectrum of methods and reflect on the places we’ve yet to go.

Tonight’s program features a range of interdisciplinary projects and speakers who explore new ways to probe our emotional landscapes through intentionally crafted experiences. While the approaches of each project are markedly different, all look at how immersive experiences can connect us more deeply with the world and people around us, and how these connections may stick with us long after the experience is over.
