A new approach
to solve design
problems

We’re a collective of artists, scientists and technologists dedicated to transforming complex information into engaging immersive and mixed reality experiences.

A network of artists, technologists, scientists and storytellers.

Immersive Networks Collective Ltd was founded in 2020 to bring together the immersive technology experience of BAFTA nominated developers Reflex Arc, the creative excellence of Calibu Yau, and the academic clout of the Leeds University Centre for Immersive Technology, where the company have honorary positions as knowledge exchange fellows and artists in residence.

 Dedicated to transforming complex data into engaging immersive narratives, the company is one of the Createch “100 ones to watch” for 2020, and has active projects sponsored by NHS England, the Alan Turing Institute, the Global Food and Environment Institute and a number of departments at the University of Leeds.”

Matching creatives and researchers

We match members of our network of the world’s leading artists and art-scientists with researchers and research-focussed organisations working across health, humanities, social sciences, physics, materials science and chemistry.

Transforming complex information into interactive narratives

Through a combination of machine learning, big data analytics, qualitative research and contemporary storytelling. We specialise in tailoring artworks and experiences to the spaces in which they are experienced, whether that’s the atrium of a building or a virtual online universe.

Projects

LivingBodiesObjects 

Interdisciplinary creative lab approaches at the heart of embodied cognition.

We are excited to announce as part of a team at the University of Leeds, we have secured £1 million in funding from global charitable foundation Wellcome to develop medical humanities research. 

The three-year development grant will be used to further understand the relationship between the human body and technologies associated with health and disability as part of a project called LivingBodiesObjects: Technology and the Spaces of Health.

Professor Stuart Murray, Director of the Leeds Centre for Medical Humanities, is joint leader of the research, alongside Dr Clare Barker and Dr Amelia DeFalco in the School of English, Dr Tom Jackson in the School of Media & Communication, Professor James Stark in the School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science, and Faye Robinson from the University’s Research and Innovation Service.

We will lead the creative facilitation to develop an art science lab and host series of six-month residencies with an inspiring group of external partners – the Bhopal Medical Appeal, Blueberry Academy, Interplay Theatre and the Thackray Museum of Medicine.

“The funding is given specifically for groups of researchers who want the time and resources to produce highly innovative research that has the potential to reshape the field as a whole.

“Ultimately, this work will further understanding of the interaction between bodies, technologies and our response to health interventions.”

Medical humanities research at Leeds brings together researchers who work on a broad range of topics across the interaction between literature, history, culture and medicine and health. The group is one of the most active of its kind in the UK and uses the critical thinking practices of the arts and humanities to ask questions rooted in experiences, practices, representations and histories of medicine, health, illness, disability and care.

Digital Storytelling for Global Food and Environment Institute

Sharing the methods and data behind a UK’s research with the global community

The Global Food and Environment Institute (GFEI) is an interdisciplinary research community, which brings together members from across academia, industry and public policy. We will be working to tell the story of their data, programmes and policy research using a fusion of drone mounted LIDAR and optical chemistry based sensors and new co-created data storytelling techniques.

Landlines 

Exploring the relationship between people and landscape

We worked with the AHRC funded Landlines projects to co-develop a series of workshop materials exploring our connection to landscape. The story is told through a series of interviews with historians, curators, games keepers, farm managers. These diverse human relationships are juxtaposed with a series of realtime landscape explorations through a series of recorded through the eyes of the artist.
