IMMENSATHON: INTO THE HUMAN LABYRINTH
Immersive and interactive HackLab of New Media Art

Humans, technology and the future: what do they have in common?

The call is open to participate in the Immensiva HackLab, in collaboration with Garage Stories and Be Another Lab, HackLab aimed to explore and work with emerging media to create experimental pieces that help us reflect on the complexity of human relationships and speculate on a future where technology helps us to be more human.
From 26th to 28th February, we will bring together 25 creative profiles to co-create in groups of 5 an experimental piece with technologies and other more analogical art forms (photo, video, music, live performance, etc) to form part of a collective exhibition “Into the Human Labyrinth” which will be open to the public in the days following the HackLab.

The themes on which the working groups will reflect are
– power and privilege
– love
– family
– self-esteem
– biases

The exhibition will take the form of a labyrinth, and there is also an open call, in collaboration with Distributed Design/ IAAC, for makers/designers who want to work with the Kuka Robot and other technologies to build the itinerary and structure of the exhibition space within which Hacklab participants will create the content.

It is possible to participate in both calls as well.

Who can apply?
Creative profiles from different backgrounds: coders, writers, designers, architects, psychologists, philosophers, musicians, gamers, performers, visual artists, etc. The call is open from December 22nd to January 22nd and afterward there will be a selection process of the best 25 profiles for the Hacklab, and 5 projects for the maker/ designer section.
