C/Change 2022 R&D Lab Cohort Salon

C/Change 2022 R&D Lab Cohort Salon

Online Event

January 19, 2023

10am PST

Please join us as we celebrate C/Change's inaugural R&D Lab cycle with a presentation of final projects. Over the past six months five interdisciplinary teams from around the world have produced interactive experiences to demonstrate the use of emerging technologies to foster inclusive dialogue and safe spaces for exchange. Join us virtually on Thursday, January 19 at 10 AM PST for a salon featuring the teams’ final prototypes with an open discussion to follow.

C/Change, a joint project by Goethe-Institut San Francisco and Gray Area, funded by the Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany, is exploring the future of technology-enabled cultural exchange.

About the teams and their projects:

Browser Histories

Browser Histories (Gabriella Garcia and Livia Foldes) is a submission-generated, interactive visual database, designed by and for sex working communities, to correct elisions and deletions by documenting intertwined histories of sex work and technology.

“Is this THING on?”

(Bhavik Singh, Christopher Clary, Sarah Rothberg, Molly Soda) is a community-driven livestream network built in the spirit of web3 — decentralizing technology in the service of decentralizing power.

Tasting Tomorrow

(Angelabelle Abarientos, Erin Riorden, Jonathon Keats, Matt Fitzpatrick) forecasts future climates in order to allow people to search for substitute ingredients that will be locally sustainable in the future via an interactive web application that suggests future alternatives to heritage ingredients and facilitates a social network of people committed to sharing requisite knowhow from the field and the kitchen.

People’s Graphic Design Archive

(Briar Levit, Brockett Horne, Louise Sandhaus, Morgan Searcy) is a crowd-sourced virtual archive that enables new stories and interpretations of graphic design history—and of our culture.


(Pierre-Christophe Gam) is a hybrid Art installation, fusing AR/VR, photography, mixed-media collage, painting, food, future-thinking and storytelling, designed to foster a global cross-cultural forum on the future of our world.
