New report: Public Digital Art Spaces
Added on Monday, February 16th, 2015
Researchers from the Institute of Cultural Capital have today published a report on the Digital Arts² initiative with colleagues from Sheffield Doc/Fest and the Communication and Computing Research Institute (C3RI) at Sheffield Hallam University.
Organised collectively by the research partners, the festival team and network operator EE, the Digital Arts² project sought to turn a public space in Sheffield, adjacent to and often used by arts organisations and venues, into a “digital arts space” through the use of artist group Blast Theory’s I’d Hide You game as a test case.
Using the Digital Arts² project as a case study, this report seeks to assess the legal, organisational and technical practicalities of using a public digital infrastructure to deliver an augmented arts performance, providing clear pathways for arts organisations interested in such opportunities.
