Remote Contact is a new exhibition that invites you to explore the ideas of 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.
