Virtual Reality Guangchai Porcelain, 2021.

The FE Art Lab undertakes research into a wide range of creative topics. Including Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR & AR), Artificial Intelligence, pedagogy and educational practice, digital arts, cross-cultural communication, and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Many of our publications can be found on ResearchGate.

A common thread running through our research is the study and presentation of Cantonese porcelain (Guangchai). Many of our projects feature 3D models and images of Guangchai and aim to promote the intangible cultural heritage of this ancient Chinese craft.
