Name: Carlos Serrano 

Title Of Presentation: Blending the Physical and the Digital Space for Audiovisual Performance

Bio: Carlos is a Media Designer and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in the field of Communication Design at Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia, and a Master’s Degree in the Media Spaces programme at BTK Art & Design in Berlin, Germany. He has focused his artistic research on how the real world can be recreated with physics and mathematics by running algorithms and simulating physical worlds in virtual representations. In the past two years, he has been mostly working with real-time engines and experiences to create a unique way of digital storytelling. His main methodology is to take elements from the physical world, and bring these elements into the digital universe by certain techniques such as photogrammetry, 3D scanning and through recording volumetric videos.
