Our studio is a cybernetic workshop in which participants explore new modes of constructing conversation. Our (adaptable) goal is to provide participants with vocabularies and processes of prototyping — experimenting, improvising, and playing with expressive forms as means of interaction, observation, and feedback. Participants can expect to journey toward a destination determined only by their continuous adaptation of traces marked in sound, gesture, and image. We propose that, by prototyping new modes of conversation, participants become aware of the experience of navigating “wicked challenges” — thus allowing a greater variety of identities and ideas to emerge.
