Remote Contact is a new exhibition by interactive arts studio Invisible Flock that invites you to interact with the artworks, and to explore the ideas of Remote Contact and how creative uses of technology might enhance feelings of connection and tackle isolation. Co-designed with individuals and their families living with dementia, Remote Contact presents a series of interactive artworks exploring how sensory and generative technologies can enhance connections between families and their relatives in care.

Remote Contact is commissioned by IN-TOUCH: Digital Touch Communication, an ERC research project at UCL, led by Prof Carey Jewitt (UCL). It is supported by FACT and Community Integrated Care, funded by Arts Council England and Leeds City Council, with the support of a Wellcome Trust Arts Award, and in collaboration with Prof Nadia Berthouze (UCL).
