Presentation


Overview

How can technology and interactivity help bring people together in public spaces?

In an era of individualism enhanced by technology, where people communicate on virtual networks more than ever, Moment Factory sees an opportunity to bring people back into public spaces using the very technologies that draw them apart. The Montreal-based new media and entertainment studio brings together more than 100 artists – a mix of architects, engineers and designers from around the world – who use their talents towards a common goal: creating human-scale interactions in public spaces with the help of technology.

Meet Marc-André Baril and Philippe Dubost who will share their personal experiences in the R&D and interactive content teams at Moment Factory. They will provide a guided tour of some of the studio’s key interactive productions with behind-the-scenes footage, a selection of recent prototypes and a peek into their evolving technological toolbox (X-Agora, Touch Designer, Unity3D, etc.).
