An ode to all the photographers hustling the weekend streets.
Deadly Serious v2.0 is one of three mulltidisciplinary teams at cascadeZA. As part of the final showcase on Saturday, the group will be building a one-on-one immersive experience that will pipe sound and visuals into a headset, taking users on a discombobulated journey through Johannesburg, that looks up at the city as if from a 'worm's eye view'.
This video was created as part of onedotzero’s educational programme cascade ZA in Johannesburg 2015.
Cascade ZA is delivered in partnership with the British Council as part of their Connect ZA Innovation Month and the Fak’ugesi African Digital Innovation Festival.
A flavour of onedotzero’s educational programme cascade ZA returned to Johannesburg in September 2015 in partnership with The British Council as part of their Connect ZA Innovation Month and the Fak’ugesi African Digital Innovation Festival.
Featuring clips from the workshops, which took place at iThuba Art Gallery and the intervention devised by the Deadly Serious team for the Fak'ugesi closing party at The Alex Theatre.
Deadly Serious v2.0 built a one-on-one immersive experience that piped sound and visuals into a custom headset built out of readily sourced materials from the markets of Johannesburg. Once strapped in to the headset, users were led around the party., creating a discombobulated experience that had them journeying through Johannesburg while simultaneouly journeying through the party. The sound and visuals were gathered around Johannesburg during the cascade workshop, with amazing footage of the streets, skies and rooftops of Jo'burg.
