“Sympoiesis is a simple word; it means ‘making-with.’ ...Sympoiesis is a word proper to complex, dynamic, responsive, situated, historical systems. It is a word for worlding-with, in company.”

-- Donna Haraway, Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene

This workshop aims to make the most out of our remote community through the construction of a collective virtual wunderkammer. Participants are invited to digitally capture urban artifacts and sonic memories, characterizing meaningful traits of their respective environments. Through two sequential tutorials in photogrammetry and real-time visual programming, participants will digitally process, transform and virtually recontextualize their audio-reactive bric-à-brac.

To connect, support, build and care for each others’ practices.

Your effort will help create a truly open source toolkit of projects that can be shared with the public.
Through forms of publication, exhibition and specialized media we will share effective strategies for spatial, social and environmental engagement, in whatever shape, scale or form.


Open and empathetic minds, passionate and enthusiastic teams.
We’re looking for participants with a dedication to connecting with your local (and global) environment, as well as a desire to support your immediate (and distant) community.
We will be working with our team of fellows, workshop leaders, project collaborators, expert consultants, and inspirational lecturers to develop a truly collaborative program.
