Erik Loyer: Strange Rain
Loyer has been working with electronic text in an array of interactive projects for many years. He is also responsible for Ruben & Lullaby, for example, another app that again reoriented our relationship to our mobile devices by giving new meaning to common actions, such as shaking and touching, and again used music as a key element in how we understand the orchestration of story and emotion through gesture and the interface.
Nicely timed for the holidays, Strange Rain is a welcome addition to the genre of artistic games and experiences for the all too often instrumental uses of mobile devices. The app is available through iTunes for $1.99, and would make a terrific gift for the media art aficionado on your list! Below, Loyer describes Strange Rain and how it works.
Astrophysicist Andrea Ghez, user experience designer Evan Sullivan, and choreographer Kyle Abraham talked about everything from what it means to be creative to how we can overcome creative fears.
Places like Taylor Yard give us a window to explore ways to balance the city's critical needs for green space, livable space and climate change strategies.
A Q&A will immediately follow the screening with actor Susan Kelechi Watson and production designer Jade Healy.
After the screening, KCET Cinema Series host Pete Hammond conversed with director Fernando Ferreira Meirelles (City of Gold), and writer Anthony McCarten.
