The University Of Sussex
Our friends at Meyer Sound in Berkeley have produced a feature item on our work with the University Of Sussex, which you can see on the Meyer Sound website HERE
The project was also covered by Lighting & Sound International, whose article you can see HERE on page 42.
The objectives of the facility are summarised by the University as follows:
"The goal of the Sussex Humanities Lab Research Programme is to transform humanities research in the digital age – to find new ways to explore the human condition and to critically assess the cultural and the social and material worlds we make with technology. The Lab’s contention is that the humanities are essential to re-imagining what is possible, and rethinking ‘what is to be done’ in a digital age. By crafting a distinctive contribution to the expanded field of the digital humanities both nationally and internationally, and by intensifying the Sussex research culture the Lab seeks to bolster new forms of humanities scholarship, and to build broader cross-disciplinary links – for instance between computational scholars, humanities scholars and social science researchers."
"The Digital Humanities Lab space has been built with the research programme in mind. It has been designed to be open, flexible and with excellent technical facilities. It has the flexibility to be adaptable for an imaginative range of collaborative research activity – fabbing, hacking, book-sprinting (collaborative writing) and for showcasing digital humanities work – eg performances, installations, and other practice-based research."
The project was managed by our own Peppe Mallozzi and includes equipment from Meyer Sound, DiGiCo, QSC, Denon, Shure, Sony, Samsung and others.
