Exploring Senses collaborated with Community 21 (University of Brighton) and Blockbuilders in our first public community event. Working together we assisted local young people from Lewes to think about what they liked and disliked about Lewes now, how they would like Lewes to become in the future, their interests and hobbies and how these might become realised in terms of real facilities and services, and how they might look. Blockbuilders provided Minecraft activities which allowed the young people to literally rebuild Lewes town. Exploring Senses assisted in generating ideas and concepts for new facilities and services, these where transformed into cardboard objects, then 3D scanned and imported into the Minecraft digital build. Some 3D scan will become 3D printed digital mutation artefacts to be possible exhibited at a later date (TBC). The day was a roaring success. Big thanks to Nick Gant and Sarah Lord for making this happen.
