The Powerhouse Museum and Creativity & Cognition Studios are collaborating to create Beta_Space, a living laboratory where the public can engage with the latest research in art and technology. Beta_space shows interactive artworks in development by CCS researchers and collaborators. Engagement with the public can provide critical information for further iterations of the art work or of the research.
Beta_Space gives visitors to the Powerhouse Museum the chance to experience collaboration between art and technology. It is a working environment, a laboratory which yields valuable research outcomes. It gives the public the opportunity to be creatively involved in the development of new forms of artistic expression, and it gives researchers an insight into the creative process of artists and technologists, and the experience of audiences.
