Today I gave a short talk at the Digital Synergies Launch Event. The launch included neat talks by colleagues including:
- Nicolás Arnaez talked about and showed The Lost Garden an audio game project led by Scott Smallwood.
- Dr. Rob McMahon & Amanda Almond talked about a neat augmented reality project that engaged with indigenous relations titled We Are All Related AR.
- Dr. Astrid Ensslin talked about her recently published book, Approaches to Videogame Discourse .
- Yourui Guo talked about the Sounding the Garden app for the multisensory Aga Khan Garden.
I showed and talked about Lexigraphi.ca – The Dictionary of Worlds in the Wild. This is a social site where people can upload pictures of text outside of books and documents and tag the words – text like tatoos, graffiti, store signs and other forms of public textuality.
