Save Event: World-building Speculative Futures

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Keiken, a cross-disciplinary collective, will discuss their approach to world-building, a fundamental part of their creative methodology that allows them to develop multi-reality worlds within game engines.


World-building is key to Keiken’s creative methodology and how they work collectively. It allows multiple people to work together as it enables you to create a dynamic multi-layered structure and freedom within it to allow multiple people’s ideas and approaches to co-exist. Think of it literally as a world, and that world needs multiple voices and ways of existing both collectively and autonomously to sustain itself.

Keiken use trans-authorial narrative to create collective stories in their worlds. Keiken use game theories and world-building to really place the audience inside a simulated future world to test drive and grasp implications and potentials. They use World-building to subvert the laws and structures from our own world—to see the world differently.

This talk is part of 'Digital Retreat', a month-long takeover curated by Charlie Clark. The take-overs are part of our new online programme.

This takeover platforms digital artists and collectives who create spaces where we can find new means of leisure and creativity, extending our worlds through the meta-realities that have been built in the virtual.⁠
