Combining open source software and affordable hardware, NowSpace is a telepresence toolkit for communities to engage in cultural exchange. The user will experience NowSpace as an 8-foot square screen that provides a full-body real-time portal from which to interact with groups of remote users, using physical gestures to control and manipulate the system. NowSpace can be applied to a variety of learning-based, creative and casual cultural activities, involving curriculum, research, curated exhibitions, events, conferences, brainstorming, gaming and interactive play. This workshop will take participants through the process of selecting software and assembling hardware to create their own NowSpace node.

Supported by the ARLIS/NA Alternative Voices Fund
