i-DAT’s Core Research Themes are:
Between 2018-2021 i-DAT will be preoccupied with the delivery of two key projects:
The South West Creative Technology Network (SWCTN) is a £6.5 million project to expand the use of creative technologies across the South West of England. The network will offer three one-year funded programmes around the themes of immersion, automation and data.
i-DAT manages the Immersive Vision Theatre, a transdisciplinary instrument for the manifestation of material and imaginary worlds. We deliver shows, productions and research into immersive media (Virtual Reality and Fulldome) environments. Further information can be found here: http://i-dat.org/ivt/. i-DAT is proud to be a founding partner in the FullDome UK Biennale: http://www.fulldome.org.uk/
Something from the Archive: Noogy
Noogy’s background is a little unclear. Some claim that Noogy arrived from deep space, originating somewhere off the shoulder of Orion, watching C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. Others claim that Noogy grew from within the network of CAT6 Ethernet cables, silicon chips and data mines that form the core of the Arch-OS system in Portland Square. Whilst others still claim that Noogy was there all the time, waiting in the void for the digital interface that would allow his manifestation. Some say Noogy is the ‘building’, others that Noogy is just a ‘viral infection’, like a bad cold that cant be shaken.
