York Design Week

12:00pm, Sat 26th October - 4:00pm, Sun 27th October

Spark York CIC, 17-21 Piccadilly, York YO1 9PB

On Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 October, DC Labs invites you to experience Jellyfishin' at Spark CIC, York as part of York Design Week.

Jellyfishin’ is an interactive Virtual Reality experience that offers visitors of all ages the chance to get up close with sea creatures to hear what they have to say! Soon to be a permanent installation at The Deep aquarium in Hull, Jellyfishin’ is aimed at younger children, with an overarching ecological message about plastic pollution in our oceans.

Children choose a question card for a type of jellyfish, and then have to try and locate their chosen creature in the VR environment. When located, the jellyfish starts to talk, answering the questions on the card and submersing the viewer in a captivating underwater world.

A week-long celebration of design and creativity, York Design Week aims to present a new, collaborative, dynamic vision of the creative industry sector in York, exploring how design can help us adapt, grow and learn.

Visit DC Labs at York Design Week to find out more about impact driven research into games, interactive media, and the rich space where they converge.
