Project Description

Talking To Blue  (2012)

Clue based city exploration for families around the mysterious presence of ‘blue’.

Context: mediating cities, family play, creative writing and animation, Blast Theory inspiration

THE WORK

A family friendly event inviting teams of secret agents to search the city looking for the mysterious blue. Participants followed a series of clues that led them to animation stations, photographing and giving words to blue along the way. Sending their findings to us as ansaphone messages in return for further guidance, they finally arrived at their a secret destination to construct their blue experiences into a collective stop-frame animation.
Talking To Blue was part of a programme of education events alongside Blast Theory’s exhibition Bless Practice.  The event was inspired by Blast Theory’s mobile interactive work such as Rider Spoke where cyclists travel the city at night searching for and leaving behind digital messages for others. Developed as part of the Animated Exeter Festival, stop-frame on location using the claymation app was an essential part of the experience.
