Hyphen-Labs is an international team of women of colour working at the intersection of technology, art, science, and the future. World-renowned and changing the way we think about design, the collective joins us at MPavilion for two incredibly special workshops—and you’re invited! As part of a larger speculative AI project that considers what it would mean to create an archive of memories—how it might be ethical, how individuals would contribute, and how the outcome would look—the workshops will explore neurospeculation through the lens of representation, radical image-making and memory.
Through a process of archiving memories, you will create masks as letters to the future and artefacts of the present. Masks are objects that cover the face for a variety of reasons and have been used for protection, disguise, entertainment or ritual practices. Participants will create masks that can represent memories, collective or individual histories, and question how masks can become artefacts in local or global histories so we can better understand the masks we all wear.
Through global vision and unique perspectives, Hyphen-Labs is driven to create meaningful and engaging ways to explore emotional, human-centered and speculative design. In the process it challenges conventions and stimulates conversations, placing collective needs and experiences at the centre of evolving narratives. Don’t miss this intriguing and future-thinking event.
This event is part of MPavilion’s STEM program.
