Trespass R&D (2015)

Trespass explored the emerging possibilities for relationships between human behaviour and intelligent environments; the ways in which creative and emotional impulses might be instantly extended to and reflected back by the architecture and structures that surround us.

This was a unique collaboration with academics from the Department of Informatics, Faculty of Natural & Mathematical Sciences at King’s College London; The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL and Shobana Jeyasingh Dance.

Trespass was part of an ongoing partnership between Shobana Jeyasingh Dance and the Cultural Institute at King’s College London and evolved from the Knowledge Producers programme, produced by the Cultural Institute to support collaborations between artists and academics at King’s.
