Summary on Grant Application Form
Pervasive media and locative media are two converging fields concerned with embedding digital information in the everyday world around us. Recent collaborations between artists and scientists have shown how such ideas can lead to new creative and cultural activities in areas such as performance, installation, games, tourism, heritage, marketing and education, with a high large potential impact on the creative industries.This network will establish a broad interdisciplinary community of scientists, artists, social scientists, and industrial and international partners to investigate how technologies and methods need to evolve in order to unlock this potential. The network will review the current state of the art; identify the key challenges to be addressed by future research; seed new collaborations; and produce offline and online resources to support researchers, industry and to promote publicunderstanding.This will be realised through three activities: organising gatherings (an initial public workshop, a summer technology camp, and a final conference and exhibition alongside a major arts festival); producing resources; and outreach activities including site visits and industry seminars. The network is led by seven academic investigators and includes practising artists (including two AHRB fellows) and partners from across a wide range of creative industries.
