Alex Coulombe’s Agile Lens takes an interdisciplinary approach to immersive technologies at the intersection between theater and architecture. He was showing off a demo piece called That Kind of Guy at XR for Change, which explored a variety of different motion capture solutions including Depth Kit & Face Cap Motion Capture. We also talked about his recent trip to the Theatre Communications Conference where he was evangelizing different ways in which theatre companies can start to integrate immersive tech at different stages of production.
Coulombe also talks about some of the general approaches to interdisciplinary collaborations that’s brought together interior designers, industrial designers, landscape designers, technical theater designers, & architects. Some of the hot topics are how spatial design is merging with game design and interaction design, which is the cross section of immersive theater. He’s a participant in the Alive in Plasticland immersive improv theatre troupe as well as a collaborating artist in Kiira Benzing’s immersive theater piece Loveseat, which is premiering at the Venice Film Festival next week.
