Lost Values

New Media Scotland and Distance Lab presents...

From Research to Reality...
an evening with Distance Lab

Thursday 19 March 2009 / 6 - 8 pm
The Lighthouse, 56 Mitchell Street, Glasgow G1 3LX, Scotland

You are invited to an evening with Distance Lab, a research organisation bringing together technology, design and the arts to overcome the disadvantages of distance, be they geographical, temporal, cultural, emotional, or social. Based in Forres in the Moray Firth area, the Lab is a source of innovation and creativity for businesses both locally and internationally.

The evening will commence with an introduction from Willy Roe, Chairman of Highlands and Islands Enterprise. Distance Lab's founder and Research Director, MIT graduate Dr Stefan Agamanolis will report on hot trends in communication and connectedness that are doing battle with distance in unexpected ways.

Projects to be highlighted include a tele-health system for supporting informal carers, new exhibition concepts that connect author and audience, immersive audiovisual recording techniques for cultural archives, and high-exertion sports games you can play with opponents over a distance.

Prototypes and demonstrations will be on view during an informal reception with light refreshments, providing time to talk with the Distance Lab team and learn about what inspires them.
This event is hosted by New Media Scotland, a national development agency fostering artist and audience engagement with all forms of new media practice.
