Laboratory for the construction of Experimental Situations.
15 years of building worlds and ways of investigating them, experimental net audio, mechanical devices and social constructivism. Too many things to fit in a paragraph:
“Narrative Worlds: Living and Lived in spaces – This presentation will outline our experience with “exploration narratives” as a way of understanding an audience’s involvement with an interactive environment, then go on to examine the projects we are currently engaged in: “Physical Narratives” is the name we use. Spaces were the fictional inhabitant has disappeared, the audience is invited to explore the objects in the space and their arrangement to explore the story of that character.
I will also talk about our developments of living spaces, mechanically enhanced garden systems and irrigation systems that we are using to enhance the harbour environment.”
