This Workshop is based on creative works using Augmented reality tools.
Cabinets of curiosities are rooms, or sometimes pieces of furniture, where “rare, new, singular things” are stored and displayed. In the 18th century, at the time of the colonies and the first archaeological excavations, plants, animals, exotic objects and even treasures from Ancient Egypt were discovered in Europe. Bizarre and amazing finds that wealthy notables liked to display in their private salons to impress their guests. Originally showcases of the oddities of the world with a scientific vocation, the “cabinet of curiosities” style was born!
In one week, students will give form to short interactive stories, integrating their own practice and ideas to represent their beliefs or non scientific phenomenons.
