After ten weeks of hard work – and obviously play – on Wednesday it was time to share the amazing results of the MI:lab experimental media and digital arts programme that we run with Warwick Arts Centre. Young people from groups across two secondary schools in Coventry (and of course our WAC regulars) produced an incredible array of material that explores the overlap between digital making and physical space. Participants worked with visualist Leon Trimble to design interactive projection mapping on a 3m³ cardboard structure as well as showing off their experiments on a giant pyramid hologram, giving demos of light painting techniques and running a chromakey booth. The most rewarding experience was not just the amazing spectacle, but the inspiring ways that participants interacted with the public, sharing their new found creative skills. Bring on September!
