the story so far
Digital Set Design was first published in April 2001 by Roma Patel a scenographer and digital artist based in the UK. Her work is focused on the points of intersection between performance, site-specific scenography and interactive technologies. In 1999, in parallel with her theatre commissions, she started experimenting with 3D digital technologies as a tool for set design and progressed to designing virtual environments for digital storytelling using real-time visualisations and augmented reality. In 2013 she joined Horizon Centre for Doctoral Training programme and Mixed Reality Lab at University of Nottingham to investigates the integration of interactive and wearable technology in scenography for early years theatre (under 3’s). Her current research is influenced by her collaborations with the Irish site-specific theatre company Coracadorca, exposure to the wonderful world of theatre for the very young (after the birth of her daughter) and the growing accessibility of tangible, and wearable technologies through the Maker movement.
