I spent a weekend with Dave Diduca as invited artists running LAB’s Frequency Speculation Summit (a part of Sideshow). Along with members of the public, we assembled an elaborate tape delay system built from quite a few repurposed stereo units.
Along with my friends Ian Laurance and Cristiana Camisotti, I ran a workshop for 50 Plymouth University Masters Architectural students, including rapid prototyping of devices to enable a non-visual mapping of a series of spaces.
The workshop was called “Mapping space with augmented perception”, and involved students designing and building devices to augment their perception, then using these new prostheses to map spaces they already knew – e.g. areas of the university campus. The point of the workshop was to explore the subjective nature of perceiving space.
