Grey Area Workshop

14. – 19. November 2015, Gray Area Foundation for the Arts, San Francisco

As part of the Fall 2015 activities in California, the ICST and the Immersive Lab was invited to hold a workshop and exhibition at the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts, located in San Francisco’s Mission district. After being shipped form San Diego at the beginning of November, the Immersive Lab was set up and shown at a public opening on 13. November. The opening reception included a panel discussion between ICST’s Jan Schacher and Daniel Bisig and the local multichannel experts in the persons of Cinechamber’s Naut Humon and Stanford’s Fernando Lopez-Lezcano. Embedded within Gray Area’s course offerings and organised by Matt Ganucheau, a workshop for creative coding artists from the Bay Area was held from Saturday 14. November until Thursday 19. November. During this week, ten artists started, learned and each one created a working piece for the Immersive Lab. On 19. November, the results of this week were shown to the public in a Creative Coding Meetup, which attracted a large number of tech savvy developers and artists.
