It aims to stimulate curiosity around creative technology; building capacity in Scotland’s cultural organisations through casual exchanges of experiences around arts and technology.
Attending their event, Stimulating Innovation with Creative Technology last week, we were particularly taken by the augmented reality technology of Werewolf, the new potential compositions for video games by Luci Holland, and the VR headsets of Dennis and Debbie club.
The subsequent panel discussion focussed on the role of collaboration and its related benefits and obstacles. The evening brought up interesting questions that lie at the intersection of art and technology. One such case was the their definition of ‘digital’ - seen as as a ‘dirty’ or difficult word. Is it because it has become so catch-all? Has it been overused and we are in need of new terms?
The hosts announced a call for proposals for the new ‘Light Bytes Curiosity Award’. This is designed to foster collaboration between cultural or arts organisations and technologists, offering £1000 funding to six Scottish collaborative prototype projects. Showcased in September, we will be keen to see what the winning proposals come up with.
