The Typomatic Visits the DSC


On December 2-3, ALIS will visit the DSC from Paris to help construct Camden’s own Typomatic. The Typomatic appears to be a photobooth, but it is much more. Once inside, you can cut words in half and discover how you might piece them back together again. You might begin by typing your name: You will come out of Typomatic with half of a new identity.

conf-1-typomatic2-e1435916011782Students and faculty are welcome to join in the construction of this device, which involves building the booth as well as writing code. The two-day workshop will culminate in an official opening of the Rutgers-Camden Typomatic at 3:00pm on December 3 in the ModLab (Fine Arts 215).

Well Played: Her Story

her-story-headerJoin us Wednesday, November 18 at 12:15 in the ModLab (Fine Arts 215) for a Well Played session of Her Story. Created by Sam Barlow, the game asks the player to search a database of video clips and to piece together a story of murder and deception. The game plays with detective story tropes, and it also uses a 1990’s aesthetic. However, its most interesting trait might be that it is a game about databases and how we navigate them. During this session, we’ll discuss these ideas and more.

Those attending will have an opportunity to both play and discuss Her Story. This event is free and open to the public.
