The Phi Centre is pleased to present a series of discussions about storytelling, art and culture in the digital age, in a space immersed within the Lucid Realities exhibition. A total of three discussions will be held, one a month from September through November, in an intimate setting limited to 35 attendees in order to stimulate interaction between the guest speakers and the audience. These new 5 @ Tech are an exclusive opportunity for attendees to enjoy an enhanced Lucid Realities experience and rub shoulders with videogame, multimedia and new-technology experts in a relaxed, informal setting.

Each discussion focuses on a thought-provoking theme around the interaction between humans and technology, starting with Nouveaux récits: expérience en solo vs expériences collectives in September. Attendees will have free time to visit the exhibition and enjoy a drink from the bar before the discussion begins. The theme of this second event is: Acknowledging body movement: humans at the heart of the matter, and the Phi Centre is proud to welcome:

  • Jonathan Belisle, Founder of Hello, Architekt!, an educational design and experience architecture consultancy, Creator of the wuxiathefox.com platform and the ensemble-ensemble.com collective;
  • Isabelle Choinière, researcher and international artist (UQAM, Montreal and Planetary Collegium, United Kingdom), specializing in dance/performance and sensory issues in the age of new technologies;
  • Martin Viau, Technical Director, Interactive Studio at National Film Board of Canada (NFB)

The Lucid Realities exhibition

The third instalment of the Sensory Stories series, Lucid Realities, invites visitors to navigate previously uncharted waters through virtual reality. Delving into a world of dreams, nightmares, memory and fantasy, the exhibition delivers a whole new way to explore, touch and feel the way we experience narrative, featuring today’s best immersive experiences and technologies such as artificial intelligence, mixed reality, olfaction, haptics and facial recognition.
