OPEN STUDIO. Ways of InteXRaction

Planet LEV Matadero. Digital Explorations

September 25, 10 am – 8 pm

Taller / Matadero Madrid

Free registration

Infinite worlds are displayed in front of our senses when we put on some virtual reality glasses. At that very moment, the concepts of time and space take on a new dimension, altering our perception of reality and our own corporeality to embrace digitality. In this new state, we will learn many ways of interacting with the environment, turning us into active players in a creative process of constant experimentation.

At this new LEV Matadero we ask ourselves these questions. How we interact in and with virtual environments? Which strategies allow us to inhabit digital worlds? Which creative possibilities only achievable in these environments are revealed to us by technology?

Using a flexible format of meeting and dialogue, this collaboration with Medialab aims to develop a community around extended reality, through the project Planet LEV Matadero, an artistic and immersive experience created by Children of Cyberspace, curated by L.E.V. Festival and produced by Matadero Madrid and L.E.V. For that purpose, we invite those who study or work in the field of virtual environments, who are curious about these tools, or who are creative in digital contexts, to learn about the projects of a series of Spanish and international artists and collectives. We particularly encourage applications from people diverse in gender, culture, disability or race.
