So everyone has been asking for the date of our first secret supper club and it is finally here!
This event is so secretive they don’t want is to give their details online, but it takes place on Thursday 20th June. Rest assured it is one of the most top end dining experiences in the area. We are very excited about holding lavish dining events in the beautiful Mauretania, quite fitting……..
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pass on your details for bookings
The event will bring together three great speakers focussing on the stories behind interaction design. It is presented by the team at The Watershed/Pervasive Media Studio’s
Doors open at 6.30, tickets are £5. There are a limited number of tickets, please do book early.
Confirmed speakers are:
Keiron Kirkland: Making magic
If you want to know how tricks are done, Kieron will explain, among other things, why asking a magician “how did you do that?” is the least useful question you could possibly ask.
He’ll explore what goes on in the mind of a magician when inventing a trick, how it goes way behind technique and is possibly one of the oldest processes of interaction design out there. It’ll include everything from playing with grand technological narratives to picking out the alpha male of a group.
Oh and he might find time to do some mind blowing magic as well. Just to prove he’s not a charlatan.
Michelle Palmer: Flaming Lotus
Michelle Palmer is part of Flaming Lotus, an eclectic group of Artists, welders, computer programmers, biotech researchers and cafe barristas. They produce some of the most striking of the pieces out at Burning Man and around the rest of the world. Michelle will be talking to us about making Serpent Mother, a 168ft long interactive stainless steel serpent with 41 flame effects along the spine which are entirely controlled by the audience. First shown at Burning Man in 2006, she has been since shown in Las Vegas, San Francisco and Robodock technology festival in Amsterdam. She is testament to what is possible when collaboration happens.
Ben Templeton: Magic Tate Ball
Tate challenged Thought Den to democratise art for the smartphone masses. Taking inspiration from the iconic Magic 8 Ball, they created a digital toy that uses GPS location, time of day, date, weather and ambient noise to select an artwork from the Tate collection relevant to that moment of your life. Available for both iPhone and Nokia Ovi, Magic Tate Ball is yours to shake, what artwork will this moment make?
