AltCity CDMX: Chameleon is an exploration of the people of Mexico City examining the relationship between virtual reality, sight and touch in one of the world’s most populous cities.

Marshmallow Laser Feast (MLF) will work with local artists to find and record stories of people within CDMX. The creative team will capture portraits of people in 360º, and texture them with objects and sounds that relate to their life. An interactive virtual gallery will be built which blurs the line between virtual and real. Viewers can explore and interact with digital busts -portraits of people in VR- that emerge from the darkness & we hear a 360º field recordings from the characters and environments documented. The images and soundscapes can also create a video installation.

The Project launches an open call to recruit local artists and professionals with the following skills:

– Photographers / film makers (who will capture & make the virtual imagery). Knowledge of Photoshop and or other editing & 3D softwares is useful.

– 3D Artists / animators (who will model & perfect the virtual objects). Knowledge of Unity, and or other editing, modelling & 3D softwares is useful.

– Sound Artists (who will capture & create soundscapes)

– Creative Technologists / Developers (who will develop the interactive elements). Knowledge of Unity, OpenFrameWorks, vvvv or similar is useful.

– Local 3D printing designer / studio – to develop the interactive objects.

We want to work with creative people who know the city, its people and can introduce it in all its wonders to MLF. They should be open to ‘thinking in 360º’ and to a collaborative process, which will hopefully bring something new to their creative practice.
