Make art with alternatives to your regular paints and brushes! move . make . muse . is a workshop that explores the concept of ‘space’ using Augmented Reality (AR). Participants will explore the concept of external and internal spaces through discussion and a movement workshop. Each person chooses a public space in Singapore that is special to them, and using AR, expresses that meaning by layering a video of their movements on a photograph of the chosen space.

This workshop is open to ages 14 and above. Participants are required to download the Captum app on their phones before coming. This app has a free trial so it is not necessary to buy the full features for the workshop.

Please wear comfortable clothing, and bring a hard copy 3R or 4R size photograph of a public space of your choice. (If a hard copy is not possible, you can bring a digital copy. A printer is available on the day to print pictures from online sources, but it is advisable to have ready the image files to maximize the workshop time.)

* This session is inclusive of a 1 hour lunch break.
