Research at SINLAB means not only scientific research but also broader concepts, including design and artistic research: exploration with the goal to produce knowledge, either theoretical, practical or aesthetic ones. SINLAB will initially focus on three dimensions: (a) transformation of time and space perception and experience within stage-settings; (b) intermediality as a dimension for expression and experimentation on stage; (c) man-machine relations as a field for the exploration of human self-understanding and exposition in living environments impacted by artefacts, mechanisation and virtualization. SINLAB explores these research dimensions by a research strategy that combines iterative prototype development and theoretical investigation on mediatisation and digitalisation within the context of the performing arts and stage.
