Digital Innovation Festival: Lethaby Gallery
In October 2022, we had the pleasure to teach AR, activism and storytelling using the Spark AR software to the BA Critical Practice in Fashion Media students from London College of Fashion as part of their Extreme Skins project within the Hybrid Narratives unit where they explored concepts of identity in the age of extreme skin and planetary challenges.
We provided a brief beforehand that included themes of AR, activism and storytelling and then piloted our first AR workshop that included digital avatars. It was a new challenge as it was the first time we included a lot of external softwares in the mix.
As a result, they went on to create some really cool face filters and digital avatars in less than a day, with no previous experience!
Big congratulations to this amazing crew who produced such good outcomes. We learned a lot from it and will tweak it to make it better for future workshops.
