Embodied Movement Design Studio

The Embodied Movement Design Studio is a bespoke new creative technology studio located at Prahran in Melbourne. 

This Australian Research Council funded facility has been designed from the ground up to enable research into embodied, movement-based technologies that integrate human movement with digital and data-driven environments.

The Embodied Movement Design Studio combines applied, creative research in the performing arts with interactive technology and systems development.

The Studio investigates and proactively advances the artistic, cultural and commercial potential of movement-based interactive technologies such as AR, VR, XR and robotics.
