Designing for Participation Workshop

Presented by The Creators Project in collaboration with  Eyebeam Art & Technology Center. Attendees will also be able to visit Eyebeam's summer exhibition, Biorhythm: Music and the Body, curated by  Science Gallery and  Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.

 

“Designing for Participation” is a 3-hour intensive workshop set on Taeyoon Choi's exhibition and platform for experimental engagement 'INVISIBLE____' at EYEBEAM's Project Space.

Space is limited, so RSVP HERE now. 


The workshop is lead by Taeyoon Choi, an EYEBEAM fellow and new Creator in The Creators Project, who will share his experience of site-specific urban intervention and research-based performance, which often use technology in unconventional ways. Choi will explain methods to use, misuse and sometimes abuse consumer technology (such as mobile phones and CCTV) and services (such as Wikipedia and Twitter) to create highly participatory experiences through D.I.Y low-tech hacking and strategic interruption. 

 

During the second half of the workshop, the participants will be invited to perform an improvisational collaboration to problem solve an imaginary social situation by designing for participation of the general public. 

 

The workshop is open to the public with RSVP and welcomes up to 25 individuals who are either Artists (visual, theater, dance, writers, musicians who are interested in using technology to make participatory experiences), Engineers who are interested in art and want to use their skills creatively, as well as anyone Curious who wants to learn more about the topic.

 

Space is limited, so RSVP HERE now.

    Hi all. Past meetup was a great fun, thanks for coming out! We (Paola and Tom and myself) enjoyed answering your questions! This workshop will get into detail of designing for participation through making situations, systems and intervention. It will be an intimate learning experience where your participation become important. If you are unsure, feel free to ask me questions about this event. [masked] See you!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
