The City and The Book

  • Deadline:
    Sept. 20, 2012, 7 p.m.
  • Location:
    USC School of Cinematic Arts , University Park , Los Angeles, California, 90089, US

A two-evening transmedia design summit on September 20th and 21st, 2012, at USC School of Cinematic Arts, 7pm to 10pm, followed by a reception on both evenings.
As the construct of the city and the concept of the book move towards each other in both scale and functionality, this 5D Flux summit investigates the potential of dynamic new histories. When the city and the book become both virtual and interactive, and contain and fuel multiple scenarios which evolve and coexist within synthetic worlds, what new stories can we tell?
In association with USC School of Cinematic Arts, the 5D Institute invites you to join our diverse and interdisciplinary network of writers, architects, engineers and artists in a multi-panel provocative and disruptive discussion of the possibilities of dynamic environments in digital publishing, virtual architecture, and interactive media, and the role of world building in the future of storytelling.
