This Creative Exchange project explored how situating digital fabrication within a souvenir-making activity can enrich audience experiences of cultural events and engage visitors in discussion and reflection upon their experiences. Giving the visitor the possibility to reflect on their experience also enabled the arts organisation to gather valuable insight into their audiences’ experience allowing them to better understand the experience they are providing.
In conversation with our partner organisations, ISIS Arts and Chris Newell (University of Hull), we developed a series of fabrication activities that offered visitors the opportunity to create their own personalised souvenirs based on their experience of the Big M, an inflatable, mobile exhibition venue housing a touring programme of immersive film installations titled On The Precipice.
This project was AHRC funded through The Creative Exchange and was developed in collaboration with ISIS Arts and Chris Newell from the University of Hull. For further information please visit the Creative Exchange website.
