Just two weeks before Europe’s lockdown, the MANTIS FESTIVAL (UK) asked 10 workshop participants to critically-discuss “Digital Overlays” in the context of their creative practice. For instance, how Digital Overlays can be experienced as watermarks of the world and spatial media; as the aural surrounding our bodies; as meeting places between the real and the augmented; as a multi-layer device spread over or across the physical or as your digital-social self.
