The Society for Arts and Technology [SAT] is launching an open call for an exploratory research residency utilizing a haptic floor prototype during the first half of 2022.
OPEN CALL – DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 14 2022
Exploration research residency for a haptic floor
The Society for Arts and Technology [SAT] is launching an open call aimed at artists, researchers and creators for an exploratory research residency utilizing a haptic floor prototype.
Developed by the SAT, this haptic floor device consists of a mesh of triangular tiles whose vertices are mobile. The tiles can vibrate, shake, move and react to sounds. The haptic floor makes it possible to create immersive and interactive experiences in places of varying dimensions, opening up new perspectives in the field of entertainment (video games, amusement parks), culture (art installations, museums, sciences…) and industry (advanced simulations, architecture).
The objective of the residency is to stimulate research-creation, the targeted exploration of creative techniques for the haptic floor and the innovative or experimental adaptation of existing or personalized tools with the device.
Q&A Session: Friday, February 11
Join us for the information session on Friday, February 11 from 1 to 2 p.m. with the SAT team.
Who is this call for?
The residency is aimed at people with a strong motivation for experimentation, research and art who are interested in an interdisciplinary approach. It is open to anyone in the following areas of expertise: science applied to the arts, digital art, performing arts, game design, spatialized audio, scenography, 3D modeling, robotics, artificial intelligence…
People wishing to start projects exploring the possibilities of the haptic floor in the fields of performance, installation, sound art, visual art or any combination of these fields are encouraged to submit a proposal.
