Workshop “Mémoire(s) immersive(s)”Ana Elena Tejera & Ines Sieulle
14:00 - 17:30
In the “Mémoire(s) immersive(s)” workshop young people from and around Rumelange were invited to create their own story based on a fictional investigation of the mining past of the region. They did drawings, and simple storyboards and were playfully introduced to new technologies. On-site they did 3D scans of typical objects of the former mine. “Mémoire(s) immersive(s)” was the first SPEKTRUM Residency that took place in June 2022 in collaboration with Diversion Cinema, Paris.
