Blast Theory | Research Because of our focus on interaction, technology has been a key driver, enabler and determinant of the work we make. Despite starting with no technical skills we have developed a practice that engages deeply with developers and researchers. Through these partnerships we generally develop bespoke software for our projects. Right from Gunmen Kill Three in 1991 we have explored the role of technology in live performance. Since 1997, we have worked with the Mixed Reality Lab at the University of Nottingham.

Much of our collaborative research is considered in Mixed Reality Performance by Steve Benford and Gabriella Giannachi (MIT Press).
