Stories from the lab
Celebrating the work of
Over the next two years we’ll be experimenting with an immersive adaption of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Our goal is to challenge traditional notions of authorship and ownership of stories while integrating literature, story and code in an effort to help us better understand the challenges humanity is facing in the 21st Century.
We meet monthly at the Film Society of Lincoln Center as well as other locations throughout the city. In addition, we hold meetups in cities around the world.
Open Tools & Resources
A goal of Frankenstein AI is to explore emergent technology’s impact on humanity. We’ll capture our findings and share them under a creative commons license.
An Immersive Installation
We’ll wrap out the year with a special immersive storytelling experience at the New York Film Festival.
Later this fall we’ll release a new MOOC (massive online offline collaboration). Over one week, participants will work to give birth to Frankenstein’s Monster.
We’ll be staging a number of Monster Creation Labs that mix collaborative storytelling and code.
Frankenstein is a cross-generational program open to all. The results of the experiment (and all DSL prototypes) are released under a creative commons license.
