Creating Social Documentary Experiences
CETI and our partners will collaborate with local communities to create poignant and powerful XR experiences of memory and imagination. We focus on two main sets of experiences emphasizing themes of migrations and displacements, of social and systemic injustice/exclusion/racism/erasure, and of future possibility. They are:
At the 2022 Portland Winter Light Festival
CETI is convening a group of artists, technologists, architects, musicians, hackers, and engineers in January for a weekend of creative experiments at the CETI Lab at PSU - an exciting interdisciplinary creative jam to bring unique interactive light and sound pieces, immersive experiences, and performances to life.
A Summer Festival of learning and creative experiments focused on wearables, costumes, masks, avatars and cosplay using creative technology, electronics, craft, sewing, music, and art. Our accessible, diy approach to tech is personal, and community-driven, combining the imagination, everyday materials, craft techniques, and cutting-edge technologies.
