! PLAY TESTING CALL OUT !
On 29th September from 3.30 to 6pm in the Pervasive Media Studio (Watershed), come and play with some new pieces in development made by the Air Giants team as part of their project, Giant Tactile Robots!
Amy Rose, an explorer of interactive narratives, is doing a 10 month Watershed MyWorld Fellowship with Air Giants - developing new ideas for how to build and tell stories with the inflatables and put them in contexts that give them a whole new spin.
Drop in for as long as you like to this play testing session between 3:30pm - 6pm.

Amy will be facilitating a session where we dream together about what these unusual objects could be. Where have they come from, what do they do - what might they want from you, an unsuspecting human? What does it feel like to put something on that suddenly inflates around you - and how could this sensation be a crucial moment in a story?
Activities will include cuddling (the inflatables), rolling around on the floor as you try to sit on them, and having imaginative conversations based on a set of questions and prompts.
We would love to welcome anyone along to have a go at this early stage - to see, together, what stories might be inspired by these unusual tactile experiences. No experience necessary, all ideas welcome!
You can come at any time between 3:30 and 6pm.
If you have any questions about access - or anything at all - please get in touch with Amy on firstname.lastname@example.org
