Here is an excerpt from the website http://www.icinema.unsw.edu.au/index.html:
“The iCinema Centre for Interactive Cinema Research, established in 2002, is a joint venture of the College of Fine Arts, Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of New South Wales. It brings together researchers and postgraduate students in new media, aesthetics, cinematic theory, multimedia design, computer science, cognitive science, software/hardware engineering and mining virtual reality.
The iCinema research program focuses on research into digital interactivity for benchmark applications across the arts, culture and industry. In particular, it is focused on the way the digital can be used to imagine new ways of living in the contemporary world, redefining how we seek recreation and learning, and the way we work and do business.”
