A short workshop led by Artist Chris Paul Daniels to launch the Unit X City Fictions project with students from Manchester School of Art.
Fifty 1st year students from Interior design, Creative Multimedia and 3rd year Film and Media Studies are invited to design, build and deploy architectural interventions across the new NOMA site on the edge of the Northern Quarter. The student's work will help to link different the different institutions for visitors to City Fictions during the FutureEverything festival weekend.
Students were divided into 10 groups.. Each group had 5minutes in a set location to plan and film a 10 second clip in response to instructions/descriptions. After 5minutes each group would rotate to the next location and camera and pick up where the last group left off. The idea of the workshop was to create a group work activity for these newly formed collaborations to experiment with inventing narratives related to spaces experienced. A playful 'exquisite corpse' through the media of film.
