IMA alumnae and Rachel Stevens present at Visible Evidence in Toronto

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.
