While scientists and technologists are fascinated with outer space exploration; Galit explores how we will unleash a new era of space exploration – right here on earth. Through the application of immersive tech, humanity will revisit the familiar physical space and create a new experiential universe.
In her talk, Galit will talk about the opportunities and challenges of such new space, where the boundaries between the public and the private, the tangible and the infinite, and the real and fictional no longer exist.
Galit is a TechnoFuturist and an immersive space explorer. She defines herself as a ‘Digital Hippie’, since she is passionate about a future that will integrate technology into our everyday lives, but not control it.
Galit is considered a thought leader within the field of immersive tech, delivering notable talks, summits and seminars exploring the topic across the globe. Her book ‘Augmenting Alice – The Future of Identity, Experience and Reality’ explores the way Augmented Reality’s diffusion will shift cultural and functional paradigms and redefine core concepts related to culture, space, experience and ethics. The book integrates an augmented layer, allowing an additional experiential value, and the chance to update content and data layer.
Through her spatial innovation lab ‘Wondarlands’ Galit helps clients and brands shape their augmented futures, exploring immersive narratives, interaction tools, brand touch-points and experience creation. Galit is an international speaker and mentor, featured at global conferences such as TED, The Next Web, SXSW, Fifteen Seconds, Slush Tokyo, FITC, The NextM and many more. She was a member of THE150 think tank that created the Copenhagen Catalog – 150 principles for a new direction in tech.
