November 2017 - We have been awarded a grant from the Hope Scott Trust in relation to the Augmented Reality aspect of the Creativity and Curiosity project. This has enabled us to purchase two Occulus Rift headsets and we have begun working with digital researchers from DeMontfort University.
October 2017 – We are delighted to receive a second funding award from the Royal Astronomical Society, specifically in support of a publication and giving presentations and workshops for the project.
We held our first meetings with eight astronomers at Cardiff University on 7th November and gave presentations on our work and heard about their research. We had the following feedback: "A big thank you to Alison, Ione and Gillian for coming to visit us on Tuesday. That was one of the most interesting afternoons at work in a long time!" Paul Clark; "One of the most interesting afternoons I've spent recently", Steve Eales; and "I really enjoyed the afternoon with the artists!", Mattia Negrello.
