“The most stimulating thing about my work in arts/digital at the moment is looking at how we can use the latest tech to enhance traditional art forms."
Managing Director and designer of digital games and experiences.
“I want to find ways to make the technology invisible – to make it so the tech is a natural part of the interaction.”
The MD of Interface3 and TigerFace Games, Kate Ho crafts and designs digital games and experiences, using innovative technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR) and Mobile Games to encourage people to play and work together.
“The most stimulating thing about my work in arts/digital at the moment is looking at how we can use the latest tech to enhance traditional art forms,” she says.
“This isn’t just about having a well-made website, or a new ticketing system, but really thinking about how we can use new technologies like AR to increase the immersion of the narrative that we want to tell.”
Ho, who was hosted by National Theatre of Scotland as part of Sync’s Geeks-in-Residence programme, is curious and excited by how artists will use digital technology in the future.
“I think we will begin to see a new generation of artist who can produce work inside a digital format because they won’t know any different. There won’t be a version of the future that doesn’t involve more technology.”
