12 Décembre 2022

History@Play Timetravel
Lecture by Katharina Tillmanns, Cologne Game Lab, TH Köln, Germany

Mixed Reality, in its many forms, is generally characterised by its audiovisual, spatial and immersive nature, blending virtual content with elements of physical reality into an arrangement that allows users to physically walk through and interact with the resulting three-dimensional hybrid space. Due to these qualities cultural institutions worldwide are experimenting with new ways of communicating, reviving and preserving cultural heritage. The session will show how adapting a body-based design approach that goes beyond the audiovisual can bring about new forms of learning and understanding history.

Katharina Tillmanns is a researcher, designer and lecturer for interactive immersive media at TH Köln (https://colognegamelab.de). A former co-president of the Games for Change Europe network and director of the Notgames Fest, she has been exploring and promoting the expressive qualities of games and other playful media as a means of art and activism for the past 12+ years. Currently Katharina is focusing on her dissertation research, which examines multi-sensory learning in the context of mixed reality environments.
