Description Ein Ort für utopischen Pragmatismus: (Social) Hacker*innen, Game Designer*innen, Denker- und Macher*innen entwerfen gemeinsam Welten- völlig antidiziplinär. Nicht nur in Gedanken, sondern als erleb- und spielbare Utopien, die getestet, hinterfragt und verbessert werden können, mit Methoden von Storytelling und Game Design, Performance Art und Improvisationstheater- digital und analog.

DeNation- Ein social fiction game (@frauhue) Dauer 2,5 Stunden Die Weltordnung ist auf Null gesetzt. Willkommen im DeNation Incubator: Entwerft neuartige Nationen-Startups und bestimmt, wie Ihr als Nation, aber als auch Nationenverbund agiert. Nehmt Territorien ein, definiert Grenzen und den Umgang damit. Schafft Kultur! Der Incubator wird die erfolgreichsten Start-Ups belohnen. (time: tba.)

Worldbuilding Workshop (@frauhue) Dauer 2 Stunden Wir bauen und testen zukünftige Welten- so realistisch oder so abgefahren, wie wir möchten, mit analogen Mitteln. Ausgehend von der Analyse realer Situationen betrachten wir die Welt mal mit den Mitteln von Game Design und Storytelling und systemischer Psychologie und entwickeln, prototypisieren und TESTEN utopische (oder dystopische?) Zukünftsentwürfe. (time: tba.)

Rudimentors Human Recharge Machine (@rudimentor) Permanente Installation Wie Juvenal schon wußte: mens recreata in corpore recreato: Erfrischende Erinnerungen in einem erfrischten Körper. Leg Dich 10 Minuten in den HRM und gönn Dir die volle Dosis Tageslicht. Fängt da an zu wirken, wo Mate nicht hinkommt. (time: tba.)

Imperfect VR Workshop by @crcdng Virtual Reality is making big headlines and many believe that it will finally become a significant medium. With all the current excitement around VR, an important question comes up: who will be the creators, who the consumers of this technology? While big tech companies are competing in the space, Imperfect VR is based on the fundamental belief that everyone can build their own virtual reality. In this workshop we will create a small, quirky VR experience with A-Frame and Google Cardboard. A-Frame is a beginner-friendly but capable open source VR framework based on web technology. Cardboard headsets allow us to use our smartphones as VR devices. To take part, you need to bring a laptop and a (recent) smartphone. You do not need to have experience in computer programming. I will go through the absolute basics and will support advanced participants realizing their ideas in VR. After the workshop everyone should have a good understanding how to create their own virtual world in a few lines of code. We will also discuss politics of VR and perception (e.g. John Berger and James Elkins) and watch a little bit of Žižek. We are not aiming for a perfect reality but we will have fun in the virtual. Imperfect VR is inspired by and built upon ideas of Imperfect Cinema. Imperfect VR workshops have been given at places like Electromagnetic Field, Plymouth University, Royal College of Art and Space Studios London. Requirements: Bring your own laptop (Mac, Windows, Linux) and a (preferably recent) smartphone (iPhone, Android). Because not all devices have a gyroscope sensor, your VR experience may be limited, but you will still be able to build the virtual world. There will be a limited number of cardboard VR headsets - if you have one: please bring your own! (time: tba.)
