Somewhere between a performance and workshop series — New York Hall of Science’s EXPOSED explores and unearths the science, innovation and/or nuances of a variety of different projects and products via an interactive experience, conversation and cocktails.
Harvestworks Artist In Residence Heayoung Kim performs MOORI, an interactive performance using smart phones and tablets that allows users to build collaborative storytelling through exchanging messages.
The schedule is as follows:
4:00pm – Phoenix Perry’s Night Games

Moori is an interactive performance combining audience-participatory narrative and audio-visuals. By exploiting innovations in network-based personal devices such as smart phones and tablets as well as SMS, Moori allows users to build real-time collaborative storytelling through exchanging messages. Dynamic narrative is established through open dialogue among participants and through questions and answers posed by audience and the system. Other OSC control methods such as buttons and multi-touch pad allow multiple user-data to generate algorithmic audio and visuals. The result is a collaboration among audience members, a real time audio–visual composition and a dynamic narrative.
