The SOCORRO team exhibits in Chatham Historic Dockyard, UK, a historical location with a collection of royal navy ships by the River Medway. The dockyard houses many small and large artefacts and remains from the height of the royal navy, including traces of corrosion on steel infrastructure at many locations.
From 11 February until 17 April 2023, the SOCORRO team is exhibiting the Zones of Flow (iii) by artist Dr Rocio von Jungenfeld at the Namur Timbers Gallery. The gallery houses timer remains of the ship Namur which were discovered in the 1990s.
Zones of Flow (iii) is a photo-sensitive AV installation created by Dr Rocio von Jungenfeld, the uses photosensitive technology and projection mapping to showcase the changes in the environments nearby water.
The SOCORRO team have also arranged an exhibition at the Steam, Steel & Submarines gallery in Chatham Historic Dockyard. The gallery houses objects and artefacts from the royal navy and in relation to the sea making it. Perfect location to exhibit and communicate corrosion-related notions.
The SOCORRO team at the University of Kent have endeavoured to organise an exhibition referencing the achievements throughout the project and communicate the science behind corrosion. The exhibition informs about corrosion, and its environmental and economic impact through a series of interactive, digital and artefact displays. The exhibition offers a great opportunity to explore the changes that corrosion causes to the surface of steel infrastructures and materials beneath.
It is also a great opportunity to experience and interact with the immersive technology developments of the Socorro project including an AR experience showcasing the Blue Accelerator and a VR taking the visitor down into a simulated underwater environment with shipwrecks and corroding steel infrastructure.
