RESEARCH SEMINAR II - Audiences, Visitors, Users
------------------------------------------------------------

We are pleased to invite you to the second RESEARCH SEMINAR, part of the AHRC funded project 'New Media, Audiences and Affective Experiences' at City University London. The seminar will explore questions on researching experiences and motivations of audience, visitors and users.  The presentations will provide insights on audience and visitors research methods in cultural and museum settings as well as through artistic interventions in the city. The use of mobile applications and GPS technologies within that framework will be a focus on the discussion.   Please note that the next seminar will take place in June (19/20th) exploring "Theoretical approaches on digital and new media research'

The project is part of the AHRC Collaborative Skills Development Scheme organised by Department of Creative Industries and Enterprise, City University London in partnership with Department of Creative Industries and Practice, King’s College London, Art and Design Research Institute, New London Graduate School (NLGS), Middlesex University, Department of Digital Humanities, University College London. It aims to establish a platform for creative dialogue and collaboration for doctoral students. The project will provide space for discussing research methods in relation to new digital technologies, audience engagement and cultural experiences. This space of exchange will be created through working together across three themed workshops leading to a one-day symposium with doctoral students from partner institutions.
Pivotal questions that will be posed are: How can a researcher capture the effect of audience experience in an interactive environment? What are the research methods and tools used to apprehend and measure users' involvement? How might such affective dynamics be theorised? This space of exchange will be created through working together across three themed workshops leading to a one-day symposium with doctoral students from partner institutions. The seminars will discuss three main themes: (1) Research and digital technologies (2) Users and audience (3) Theoretical approaches on digital and new media research.
A symposium, part of the project, will be held on 9th of December 2013 at Parasol Unit foundation of contemporary art.
The symposium will be facilitated also as part of the Haegue Yang exhibition. The symposium will specifically discuss audience experiences and interaction with new media interventions in art galleries, museums and institutions invoking affect. Potential panel themes include, institutional engagement in the production of interactive experiences and politics of emotions and affect in media art, the artist perspective.
