Storytelling Salon

Storywell is an anthology series presented by Creatorland Inc., that promotes the connection between people of diverse backgrounds and artistic disciplines to shift mindsets around our shared understanding of storytelling so that we can transform ourselves, and how we interact with the world around us.




Interstellar Alternatives

This immersive 3D environment addresses themes of colonialism, exploitation and consumption by examining a possible future of space travel and tourism. Interstellar Illusions leverages science fiction and fantasy aesthetics within a navigate-able speculative narrative. Viewers are invited to explore a fictional and abandoned extraplanetary luxury resort. It is unclear as to why the resort has been vacated, but what’s left behind offers an eerie glimpse of what the future of space travel and tourism could be.

Experiments in machine hallucinations by Valérie Bélanger

In Fungus Dreams, Valérie Bélanger explores the aesthetic possibilities of emerging AI tools by combining her own wildlife photography with the outputs of generative video system powered by machine learning tools. Bélanger uploaded still images, over and over again, each time extending the space of the photo into a increasingly dreamy landscape. The resulting video is a surreal machine dreaming landscape.

An Artengine commision by Annika Walsh

Produced during their time as a Junior Fellow at Artengine, Technically Soup was commissioned for our shared kitchen and lounge area. This area is an important space in the Artengine facility, where we come together around a table in as many configurations as their are members of our community. Walsh has been exploring the intersection of food and art in her practice for many years and we wanted them to bring this artistic perspective into our most social of spaces. Come by for a bowl of something we can technically call soup!
