Corpus/Augmented Cinematic Action

WORKSHOP IS FULLY BOOKED

In this workshop, we will explore simple mobile devices as a means to build an architectural sign system which triggers images, instead of casting them. The first half of the workshop, "Corpus" will explore and transform these "private" devices by converting them into wearables that generate light and sound through movement. During the second half of the workshop experience, "Augmented Cinematic Action", participants will use these mobile devices to build an electronic memory theatre; installing an augmented space that can be experienced by an audience walking through.
