Recording Small Worlds: Gjakova

By | News, Workshops

During 24 hours in Gjakova, (10am to 10am) we will discuss, create, and present films about places in the city which allow one to withdraw from the public gaze—however momentarily, and be alone. Not metaphorically, but actual places, outside of the home, that provide cover. These places change from day to night. Participants must explore the city by time of day. Participants will fan out across the town and make short films using their phone cameras and device-based editing tools. We will screen the results for an audience on Sunday. Interview and the presentation of facts is encouraged but not…

By | News, Workshops

Digital media give new ways for architects to engage with environments, allowing us to shape our expectations of the real world. Contemporary videogames contain spaces that challenge our conceptions of cities, and twist them towards new realities.

Open Studio / Zombie Soup

By | Events, Open Houses+Studios

We specialize in the right ingredients such as artificial intelligence or virtual reality. A mixture combined with the void of ideas wanting to be realized, but such a dish requires the knowledge of timing, collaboration, growth and an agile foundation. The final product – a soup of engagement, addictive by design. In its DNA you can sense all of us, our hunger to impact the end-user experience and its viral spread.   Stills from a game “Captain 13” produced by Zombie Soup.
