Rachel Stevens and IMA alumnae Laura Chipley, Sarah Nelson Wright, Samara Smith, A.E. Souzis present their projects at Visible Evidence. Projects: Oyster City, The Newtown Creek Armada, Architextour and COMMotion. Collectively, these projects draw on a variety of mobile technologies to increase interactivity and participation.
In the workshop, they discuss a site-specific documentary practice, highlighting their individual and collaborative location-based documentary projects and exploring how site-specific documentary practices have evolved with changing mobile and locative technology. All of the documentary projects to be discussed are site-specific explorations of physical spaces that augment or invite public participation in chronicling the physical world with mobile media. Technologies explored will include: audio, SMS messaging, augmented reality, sensors, go-pros, underwater cameras and aerial photography.
