Elisava has signed an agreement with the creative technology platform ProtoPixel, the school's new official lighting partner. One of the first actions carried out after the agreement has been the development of the Public Protest Billboard project that emerged from the last Marató Creativa, a physical and digital interactive platform created by the students of the Degree in Design and the Degree in Industrial Design Engineering of the School and based on the concept of the collective project Public Protest Poster.
New interactive and more visual contents
Protopixel's role in this new phase of Public Protest Billboard has involved updating the screen's lighting control system and a workshop for the students of the 'Critical Theories' course of the Degree in Design (Mention in Interactive Experiences) to familiarise themselves with the ProtoPixel Create software and create new interactive and more visual contents to be projected on the project's LED light panel.
In the framework of the same agreement, ProtoPixel offers free downloads of its Create software valid for 1 month to all Elisava students, and will support the different educational programmes in any need related to lighting control and design, from the creation of a product to an installation or interactive experience. The company will also offer creative residencies for students at its Barcelona offices and an internship programme in collaboration with the lighting company Simon Lighting.
