FACT, Liverpool, North West, United Kingdom
Rewire will take over a hidden space in Liverpool to create a physical and digital landscape that will reimagine what it is to play in urban space and translate the Internet of Things (IoT) into a participatory rIoT. Nothing functions as expected, from robotic streetlights to interactive storm clouds; Rewire invites audiences to explore everything and uncover a place where technology and magic are indistinguishable.
FACT, in partnership with Liverpool City Council, has engaged interactive arts studio Invisible Flock to reimagine outdoor art as a spectacular and immersive experience driven by digital innovation.
Rewire will explore what it means to be both an individual and a collective. Each night over three weeks, participants will be able to access the neighborhood; a playful sandbox world that has been rewired and reconfigured, waiting to be brought to life.
