Immersive Intelligent Aesthetics as Conduit for Digital and Public Humanities Research
The article outlines conceptual frameworks and experimental studies developed at the University of New South Wales, surveying a selection of creative arts industry research projects. These deliver fully immersive interactive visualisation systems that enable new forms of embodied engagement with artistic, cultural and performance datasets, deploying Artificial Intelligence to analyse and augment user navigation for improving data identification, access and processing. Sketching the developmental trajectory of intelligent aesthetics across these projects, the paper closes with a critical consideration of effects and implications of human-machine co-agency in this new context of cultural reflection.
