In an age of digital acceleration and virtual technologies, the ability to physically experience futurist ideas and parallel worlds has never been more important.

As Technical Director of the critically acclaimed Arcadia Spectacular, Bert Cole pioneers large scale immersive experiences that synthesize engineering, robotics, performance and 3 dimensional storytelling together with cutting edge digital technologies to bring those worlds to visceral life.

Exploring the relationship between art, science and sensory experience to reimagine conceptual ideas, Bert will also focus on how mediums shape messages, how thousands can unite through shared experiences, how tangibility reinforces abstract ideas and how the relationship between analogue and digital can transform our future.
