Walking . . . is how the body measures itself against the Earth.
We use technology to be more connected with nature. We are digital media artists, teachers and researchers experimenting in the field of spatial narratives and locative media with mobile technology. We create locative games & walking stories and give workshops oriented to ecological identities.
We are collaborating with the holistic scientist Rich Blundell since 2014. We created the Oika Kids workshops with the aim to extend Rich worldview and methodology for kids. We explore how we can use digital technology to reflect our interactions with nature. We use VR and AR contents combined with the training of our senses in the outdoors. Oika Kids is part of the Oika.com project.
