• DIGITAL LAOCOÖN at Creative Economy’s Immersive Experiences Showcase

    Back in January ISO and The Glasgow School of Art answered a research call from the AHRC & EPSRC to explore the future of immersive experiences in the context of three central concepts – Memory, Place and Performance. 

    We are in York today at the #ImmersiveExperiences Showcase sharing the fruits of this research – DIGITAL LAOCOÖN; a VR experience and accompanying AR app which tell the intriguing story of the Laocoön statue that once sat in the historic Mackintosh School. Our research explored how VR’s unique transportive and immersive qualities can bring new and exciting ways of interacting and engaging with historic objects.
