We invite you to join our workshop The Backpack of Wings: Sensory Networks by Hyeseon Jeong and Seongmin Yuk.

The workshop “The Backpack of Wings: Sensory Networks” invites the participants to collectively create an imaginary storytelling, by looking into the GPS data from migratory birds. The bird’s geographical information tells not only about their biological behaviour, but also reveals the correlation between human activities. The workshop addresses to open up a possibility of using the bio-geo tracking technology as a tool for communion, and not to stay in the level of understanding the species.

Driving the Human is a catalyst for experimentation, shaping sustainable and collective futures that combine science, technology, and the arts in a transdisciplinary and collaborative approach. From 2020 to 2023, Driving the Human develops and produces seven tangible prototypes responding to complex contemporary scenarios. One of them, The Backpack of Wings: Modern Mythology represents the speculative future scenarios, which are collisions and integrations between a bio-geo tracking technology for wild animals in scientific fields and an animism in seismic disaster myth in East Asia.

As we have limited space registration is needed. Please register to secure a spot.
