REAL-IN aims at exploring crossroads of cultural, audiovisual and creative sectors for immersive and interactive proposals, exploiting 3D scanning technologies combined to XR settings. REAL-IN will activate multidisciplinary synergies in a co-creation process between creatives, coders, creative industries, with the result to break silos between creative sectors.
As part of the first Open Call for interactive art, one artwork was selected by an international jury for the REAL-IN Residency. The REAL-IN Convention aims to bring together artists, producers, cultural institutions, policy makers, industry experts and researchers to explore the potentials of 3D-scanning and volumetric capture technologies for interactive and digital arts.
Besides VRHAM! as the partner for visual arts and interactive design, REAL-IN is an alliance made of another major EU festival, La Manufacture (performing arts) in Avignon, two innovative cultural institutions in two major European cities and world ranked events in creative industries MEET Digital Culture Center (fashion & design) in Milan, ESPRONCEDA Institute of Arts & Culture (music) in Barcelona, and an award winning audiovisual technology company Dark Euphoria located in one of the major European audiovisual hubs in Marseille.
Within the framework of the EU call for proposals “Bridging Culture and Audiovisual Content through Digital”, REAL IN co-initiated by VRHAM! was one of eight projects to receive funding.
