15th September

12pm - late


For EF18, Carla Zimbler presented Live Visuals and Projection Mapping for female identifying and non-binary individuals in an inclusive and fun learning environment.


This full day masterclass explored experimental VJ techniques, blending modes and effects. Students learnt how to create audio-reactive visuals, build interactive video installations and projection map to sculptural surfaces.

Carla Zimbler creates live visuals and designs large scale video installations and audio-reactive animation for runways, stage performances and building façades. Carla began engaging with projection art as a medium during study in eastern Iceland in total darkness. It was a way to lighten up bleak surroundings and lift emotional states throughout winter. As a result, Carla started to design and build sensory experiences and meditative spaces for audiences - transformative, therapeutic environments which aid in restorative healing through sound, touch and vision.

In the context of the emerging Internet-of-Things (IoT) our relation to technology is changing as the IoT is embedded within seemingly unrelated objects. The IoT suggests a new paradigm in which individuals are submitted to the range of its sensors; we are offered no choice but to surrender to its monitoring. This gives rise to urgent social and political concerns surrounding privacy and identity issues, particularly given that the impetus for the propagation of the IoT is the identification and tracking of people by both governmental and commercial organisations. 

PilferShush is a research project by City Frequencies that seeks to examine the connection between IoT devices and mobile phones specifically through the rising use of inaudible near-ultra high frequency signals. It has a demonstration model that consists of an IoT lightbulb that communicates to a mobile phone and forces it to open a browser to a specific webpage – with no user action required. And a counter-surveillance app consisting of a passive and active jammer within the 18kHz – 24kHz range.
