Norwegian artist HC Gilje explores how audiovisual technology can be used to transform, create, expand, amplify and interpret physical spaces. He will present the research he has been doing over the last three years during his research fellowship at the National Academy of the Arts in Bergen (KHIB). HC Gilje writes regularly on these matters on his blog Conversations with Spaces. The Italian sound designer Lorenzo Brusci will give a presentation on his work in the field of immersive sound and experience design. He is (co-)founder of the applied acoustics division of B&C Speakers Architettura Sonora, the environmental design team Giardino Sonoro and the studio Sound and Experience Design. And Telcosystems will present their latest work 12_Series, which they developed at BALTAN Laboratories as part of the Poème Numérique investigations.

BALTAN goes NATLAB is a monthly series devoted to presenting and contributing to BALTAN Laboratories’ research programme Poème Numérique. Previous guest speakers have included Tim Edler from realities:united (DE), artists BULL.MILETIC (NO), Thom Warmerdam (Philips, NL), Willem van Weelden (NL), and designer Christien Meindertsma (NL).
