Cat Fergusson-Baugh

Lecturer / Director of Drama

Biography Cat has been at the University since 2007 and previously held posts at Kent and Warwick. She has worked with computer visualisation since the internet was young and programmes were launched from DOS.

She has made contributions to Channel 4's Lost Buildings series, THEATRON (a virtual theatre resource), and to exhibitions of the work of Craig and Loutherbourg for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and the work of Vlastislav Hofman at the Columbus Museum of Art.

More recently Cat's focus has moved to the area of digital performance, developing it as a taught specialism at Hull and contributing to the production of Surfaces of Understanding (Oculus installation) and producing Fellow Prisoners (binaural audio walk).
Research Interests Cat's research explores the ways in which digital technologies offer extended and alternative approaches to the study and development of live performance events. From the methodological impact of visual reconstruction technologies on visual histories to the development 'simultaneous' realities (through developed sound design or augmentation), new technologies offer us different ways of seeing.
Teaching and Learning Cat's teaching currently explores modes of performance that may be shaped by the intervention of digital technologies. Digital and interactive performance, environmental and site specific performance and modes of performance that explore the opportunities offered by modes of gaming.
