Digital technologies help performing artists using virtual reality

Sophia Ppali, Digital Arts PhD candidate and Graduate Teaching Assistant in the School of Engineering and Digital Arts, is currently lead developer and researcher on an Innovate UK funded project which enables audiences to enjoy musical performances in iconic venues using virtual reality.

Sophia will be using the project as research for her PhD into how the pandemic has affected performing artist’s mental health and how digital technologies can assist with that.

The project has already gained media interest. Please access the links below to find out more.
