Speculative Camera Filters + Co-Visioning with Augmented Reality

  • Industrious Glendale 500 N Brand Blvd 20th Floor Glendale, CA 91203 (map)

Join us for a two-part hands-on workshop where we’ll explore the potential for camera filters to invisibly (and often insidiously) manipulate emotional responses to images and footage. We know that graininess and sepia tones generate nostalgia, but how do we invent more complex emotional and personal landscapes through the use of filters? What would a gender-euphoric filter look like? A gregariously sleep-deprived filter? A hangry filter? A self-love filter? In part 1, we’ll create analog AR filters for phone cameras using everyday objects and craft materials, actively authoring our own visual narratives. In part 2, the workshop will culminate in a viewing of our DIY filtered content, the creation of a co-authored AR narrative, and group discussion. 

Who is this for? This is an inclusive workshop. We welcome all creatives, artists, designers and technologists (especially from underrepresented groups, i.e. women, people of color, queer and trans folks etc.) age 18 and up.

Instructors: Lilyan Kris (Artist and Technologist) + Jessy Escobedo (Fellow, City of LA Innovation Team)

Parking: Paid parking in the basement lot (at 500 N. Brand Blvd., Glendale, CA 91203) or metered street parking.
