our exhibitors

At the heart of Future Sync is our interactive exhibition space. We showcase the best and brightest projects from around the South West for attendees to experience during networking breaks. Projects include award-winning VR games, bespoke digital art installations as well as graduate apps and games from around the city.

  • Chris Hunt
  • "Loving Grace"

    by Controlled Frenzy

    Loving Grace is a series of installations that explores our personal connection to artificial intelligence and conceives new relationships with machines in an era of automation. It will invite an audience to create a ghost – abstract creatures brought to life through their voice and personality. The ghosts will go on to interact with the audience throughout the event, both online and off. By making use of generative visuals and audio along with advanced voice detection and analysis, it will showcase new technologies in a highly interactive form.
