The Immersive Kind’s Kadine James and Lucy Wheeler will share insights into their recent project, future art ecosystems in the metaverse. They will discuss their interdisciplinary research into the metaverse, what it means to create within a digitised society and the emerging tools being used by artists.

IK pursues tangible impacts of the internet and seeks to set new standards of technological advancement, sophistication and innovation through human and machine minds. In this talk, you will discover how creative practitioners are using digital tools to shape our realities as we know it.
