Creating immersive sensory experiences around a theme!
This session explored cheap and effective ways of creating multi sensory environments for visual and sound stimulation using portable dark and white rooms. We experimented with a wealth of light and sound equipment, create images using luminous paint, and project sensory iPad apps and video onto 3D objects. The aim was to create controllable experiential activities that encourage engagement and interaction for all learners, and to think about creative ways of theming these. We have been inspired by the work of Richard Hirstwood: http://youtu.be/ihMSw8BIXF4 and http://youtu.be/PkIKpOn7y98.
In the slideshows below children from Rowan Gate School, Portugal and Ireland used our multi sensory light equipment, iPads and the portable darkroom to manipulate photos and create abstract images as part of their Smart Through Art Comenius project exploring art across disciplines. They used the apps Rollworld, Fragment and Be Funky.
