Marshmallow Laser Feast Artist Residency
We’re so pleased to announce that the renowned Marshmallow Laser Feast join Interactive Architecture Lab this year as Artists in Residence bringing their unique combination of visual art, technology hacking and experience design to the Bartlett School of Architecture. MLF will contribute to new areas of investigation in virtual and augmented reality research as well as teaching students of the Interactive Architecture Lab. After a number of years of collaborating with MLF on commercial projects, we’re delighted to be having this opportunity to explore very open ended research with such a talented group of artists. We’ve already had some interesting workshops with Oculus Rift, Projection Mapping and Robotics. In the coming months we aim to synthesis these into exciting new projects with our students.
Marshmallow Laser Feast (MLF) is a creative studio exploring the line between virtual and real-world experiences. Headed by Robin McNicholas and Barney Steel, their interests are routed in creating people-centred, live interactive work. They have flawlessly conceived, designed and delivered highly aesthetic and evocative showstoppers in collaboration with many brands, musicians, advertising agencies, event organisers and art institutions. Their work for U2’s ‘Invisible’ Super Bowl promo and the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase has brought a plethora of digital art experiences to the live environment. MLF recently joined forces with Chris Milk’s VRSE.works to explore the new world of virtual reality. They are currently developing a broad range of VR experiences.
