Livingverse (2010, Mobile/Mixed Media)
The Livingverse thesis project consisted of an interactive locative media project, a feature length documentary, and a research paper. The locative media tour used binaural recordings and archival audio/video to create an immersive narrative world to explore our contemporary global networked society through layering other historical places onto the architectural contours of the Digital Arts Research Lab at UCSC. Rather than presenting global networks through abstracted graphical representations of nodal relationships, the Livingverse project creates an interactive experience that directly engages the embodied perceptual and affective elements of the individual in relationship to these larger historical events and social transformations. Originally exhibited at the Things that are Possible DANM Thesis Show in 2010.
