On Tuesday, May 31st we'll be exploring "The Forensics of Storytelling." The evening will examine the science of Sherlock Holmes and the lessons that can be applied to storytelling and experiential design.

Our special guests for the evening will be members from the global collective The Baker Street Babes ( The all-female group of Sherlock Holmes fans is dedicated to approaching the fandom from a female point of view, as well as engaging in fun, lively conversations about the canon, film and television adaptations of Arthur Conan Doyle’s work, and associated topics.

After the talk/group discussion we'll shift our efforts to the design of the upcoming Sherlock Holmes & the Internet of Things event during the New York Film Festival later this fall. This session will focus on ways to connect the various crime scenes that will be staged in over 20 cities around the world. We'll be designing, prototyping and testing our collective ideas with a variety of IoT solutions. In addition curators from the Film Society of Lincoln Center will be joining to give us an overview of the upcoming festival.
