immersive programming

A variety of examples... In Waking, the musical, the audiences dances to a DJ character appearing inside a giant jellyfish. In the Obama gown, people gather to converse about the illustrations on the dress. In the Eyes of Ballston, users interact over the internet to "wake up"  eyes made of programmed LED's. At the Festi-belle, guests ride art bikes, play with giant bubble wands, dress up and sing. In Bloom, the reboot of the National Cherry Blossom Festival, a city becomes a canvas with a participatory artisan parade and then the exploration moves outward into destinations of open art studios and classes. The 40 Years iphone app for Meridian International Center, gave people all over the world a way to explore an exhibit on diplomacy that traveled in China.

And here's some more...

I've also created 2 companies for children below, which allowed kids to immerse themselves in learning taking part in different ways.

 

Left Noodle Right Noodle

LNRN was an arts enrichment company that provided thematic informational content via day camps and classes taught through art, drama, and movement for Pre K-5th grade. I was the creative research and writer for  LNRN’s 90 country Global Arts Odyssey curriculum which ran in over 40 schools. The Left Noodle-Right Noodle reach had over 700 loyal families and served thousands of experiences for children at their own sold-out camps, and as vendors at host locations.

Lola's Lab

founder, programatic and theatrical writer, artistic/creative director, illustrator, costume and product designer

Lola's Lab offered a range of theatrical immersive programming. I wrote, directed and designed 40 of my original plays were presented paired with original arts curriculum and participatory story products that allowed the audience to participate in the story, breaking the fourth wall and solving problems through the arts. For 7 years Lola's Lab offered live programs and over the last we began to experiment with immersive video and podcasts called Heroes of Imagination where kids listen and then meet the characters via live media.
