DATAPRINT: THE INSTALLATION
DATAPRINT: THE INSTALLATION, the immersive installation version of our DATAPRINT project premiered simultaneously on the weekend of 22-23 September 2018 at The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose, USA, and the Cubbon Park Metro Station in Bangalore, India. A catalyst for conversations about data privacy in two key cities in the technology sector, it offered visitors the opportunity to reflect on the impact of their online fingerprint by creating an avatar based on their virtual habits, then witnessing a visual representation of their online behavior. Watch the trailer here.
We are now taking what we learned, and moving ahead to the next installment of DATAPRINT: an immersive experience at the intersection of gaming and performance that asks audiences “What is the impact of data on democracy?”
DATAPRINT: IN PROCESS
Kaimera presents DATAPRINT in a workshop at the Montalvo Arts Center. We invite audiences to interact with the work-in-progress installation and provide insights that will contribute to the fine-tuning of DATAPRINT before its public presentations in September 2018. Reserve your space here to join us at the Montalvo Arts Center on Tuesday, August 21st, between 6-9pm.
Kaimera in the American Theatre Magazine & Howlround
Simón Adinia Hanukai, Kaimera’s Co-Artistic Director, was interviewed for the latest issue of American Theatre Magazine. The issue focuses on immigration, and this article asks: What roles can theatre play in the global refugee crisis? Healing, representation—and diversion. The article, which you can find here, concludes with a section about our work.
Also, a recent HowlRound article describes Kaimera’s SPACES: Harlem production, which was commissioned and presented by the 2017 Harlem Arts Festival. Read it here, and if you haven’t seen it yet, make sure to check out the short video trailer of the piece. Stay tuned for news of SPACES jumping continents in 2019!
