SCIENCE FESTIVAL EDO WONDERPARK HACK DAY
SATURDAY 23 FEBRUARY 2013
SCIENCE-FLAVOURED HACK-DAY INSPIRED BY SPACE ADVENTURES, PLANET HUNTING AND GAMES
A science and technology hack-day for technologists and designers presented by Lighthouse as part of brighton Science Festival 2013.. The hack day used David Blandy’s 'Anjin 1600: Edo Wonderpark' universe of characters and stories as a starting point.
Anjin 1600 retells the story of William Adams, a sea navigator known as the first Englishman to set foot in Japan in 1600, as an epic intergalactic space adventure. The sea becoming the vacuum of inter-planetary travel, and the countries of England and Japan becoming the distant planets of Albion and Edo.
As part of Lighthouse’s contribution to Brighton Science Festival 2013, we invited young software developers, creative technologists, animators, and designers to collaboratively work together on games, interactive objects and prototypes, extended our understanding of navigation, space exploration, planet-hunting and the role technology plays in these pursuits.
The hack day complemented David Blandy’s residency at Lighthouse, where he prototyped a new exhibition of Anjin 1600: Edo Wonderpark
