May 16th / 9PM
ARTALK Josephine Dorado
47 Great Jones St/ 3rd Floor
FREE: PLEASE RSVP / LIVESTREAMED
Join CultureHub's live in studio/telematic ARTALK with Josephine Dorado and Phillip Gulley. Josephine and Phillip will be conducting an #IdentityMashup lab, in which participants create (dis)embodied stories based on Jung's shadow archetype, and explore identity through a mashup of avatar roleplaying, livestreaming and performance in a mixed reality environment. Short stories based on shadow work will be told through an avatar whose face is mapped to a live video stream of the participants' actual faces, creating hybrid physical-online identities that are simultaneously distorted and revealing.
