/ Digital layers
...Toby Chanter is a PhD candidate at the University of Plymouth working between i-Dat and the School of Humanities and Performing Arts.
Developing a interdisciplinary and experimental approach to immersive and interactive installation, his research interrogates the role of technology in the production of biomedical knowledge, and explores the associated sensory politics of medical education and art.
Physical spaces and digital layers are brought together with novel sensor technologies to create responsive and expressive environments. By using forms of physical and physiological interactivity that foreground embodiment and standpoint, his practice seeks to examine the entanglements of education and technology, art and knowledge.
