Plutopia 2011: The Future of Play


Plutopia Productions presents Plutopia 2011: The Future of Play, a “thrilling interactive experience of the future” that takes place during SXSW 2011 on Monday, March 14th at the Mexican American Cultural Center in Austin, TX.

To be held in Austin on Monday, March 14th, 2011, the event will be thoughtfully positioned as a well-crafted link between SXSW Interactive, Film and Music. Furthering our mission and intent to create unique “sense events,” this year’s extravaganza will include interactive installations, performances by world-renowned musicians / artists, talks, art exhibits, compelling projections, DJs, demonstrations, performance art, robots, projections, gaming fun, locally produced, artisanal food and beverages, and much more.

The entertainment, performances, talks and installations will include a wide range of emerging technologies, social and behavioral change, and affective processes. These will cover everything from sensory engagement, smart materials and architectures, robotics and augmented reality to interactive, socially and location-aware installations, gaming and stage performances. Plutopia 2011 will be rich in converging technologies and science with the arts and entertainment.
