Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The International Conference on Stereo & Immersive Media aims to bring together the research fields of photography, sound and cinema, considering their historical and current relationships with expanded and immersive environments. In 2021, due to the Corona virus pandemic, its 4th edition will adopt an online format and will combine traditional plenary sessions and themed parallel tracks, with a S3D Short Film Festival and a Virtual Art Gallery to showcase the most recent and diverse immersive artworks.
Stereoscopic and immersive technologies have been widening the scopes of photography, sound and cinema since the 19th century. Immersion draws both on state of the art technologies and on old and discontinued media that have once stimulated and expanded our perception. While these technologies (from stereo views to cinema, virtual reality or video gaming) have deeply strengthened the human relationship to virtual worlds, they have also made visual documents more engaging, triggering richer and more inspiring interpretations of reality. Today, some of these technologies are also being used and considered vital to reshape our perception of heritage and to allow new readings and museological experiences of historical collections.
The conference will be online 17 and 18 June 2021
