#HACKSTOCK – IMMERSIVE ARTS WITHOUT BOUNDARIES
29 APRIL – 2 MAY 2016
The Trampery, 239 Old Street London EC1V 9EY
So what is #HACKSTOCK?
A collaboration between SCI-FI-LONDON and PSYCHFI, #HACKSTOCK is giving us just that by making science fiction a reality. Holograms, virtual reality, mind control… sounds like creations of Matrix and Star Wars proportions… but they exist.
#HACKSTOCK is the cyberdelic brain child of Alt. state pioneers, tech dreamers, creators, and hackers transcending the limitations of perception and reality.
Inside the virtual realm, you lose complete contact with the real world, like entering inside a video game within a seemingly endless space where anything is possible. But we’re talking about so much more than just VR: holograms, augmented reality, 360 social video and live experiential, Time Run (role play), haptic technology (wearable tech), drawing within a virtual space…. there will also be workshops, panels, popup hacker experiences, and Talkaoke, a spontaneous pop-up talk show and participant-led discussion around the ‘UFO’ of chat…. all under one roof for four days. We also have some VR shorts submitted to the festival and will be showcasing them in Gear VR and Google Cardboard!
