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.
Event Date: Wednesday 1st August – Sunday 30th September 2018
Location: FACT, 88 Wood Street, Liverpool, L1 4DQ
