2020-2021 Factory 2.0: DAI's FOREST LIVING ROOM
DAI's FOREST LIVING ROOM is a temporal chat room (world) at topia.oi ‘activated' by Ioana Lupascu (DAI, 2022) fostering avatar wanderings and informal encounters among our community at large.
Existing since DAI WEEK 3 and continuing throughout DAI WEEK 4 and beyond, DAI's FOREST LIVING ROOM invites students, tutors and crew to join in on their laptop's desktop (via a link and a password provided), wander around the ‘virtual woods' and engage in a conversations with other students as soon as their avatar reaches close proximity to one another.
This student intiative is facilitated by DAI by making it part of the syllabus 2020-2021 and by providing space and time for gathering. It is embedded in the curriculum component Factory 2.0 and participation is credited with ECTS.
