The department is pleased to welcome Second Story Interactive Studios, an interactive studio focused on storytelling, to host a workshop for MFA candidates this semester. The focus:
Since humans began recording images on cave walls by torchlight, viewers have attempted to construct meaningful relationships between media and the spaces they occupy. Media and space have always been about narrative. Cave paintings tell a story about the ancient world in which the story is deepened by its spatial context. Digital media couples narrative with user interaction to create “second stories” that can be leveraged in space in new ways. Interaction in a Spatial Context is a workshop to explore new interaction design paradigms that emerge from situating digital media in space. Over the course of two days, space-media typologies will be examined within the setting of New York City to design new experiences and tell new stories.
Daniel Meyers, creative director, Environments, and Traci Sym, senior producer, will lead the workshop.
