OLD HOMES, NEW TECH. Symposium

Interested in how art and technology can breathe new life to historical venues or collections? Old Homes, New Tech is a symposium exploring the use of digital arts in stately homes, gardens and other historical venues.

Join us at the stunning Port Eliot Estate on 13th March to experience a series of digital tech demos, featuring Face-Recognition, Voice Control, ARKit, HoloLens, 360 and Haptics. We are inviting arts, culture or historical organisations to Port Eliot’s fantastic Round Room to experience and question over coffee, a few curated ways that technology can positively intervene with tradition.

Interested?

If you work with technology, art, collections or historic buildings we’d love to hear from you. Please register before 1st March to be considered for a place. As the space at the venue and opportunities to interact with the tech demos are limited, we may not be able to accommodate everyone. We’ll let you know by 5th March if you’ve been allocated a place.

Tech Demos

Throughout the day, we’ll demo a unique mix of new media technologies chosen for their suitability to the increasingly delicate and beguiling surroundings in which we propose they can be situated. This concise suite of technology demonstrations is themed to show ways of enhancing an audience’s experience without being too overt and so maintain any historical venue’s original characteristics.
