Dubai Design District (D3), Dubai, United Arab Emirates

1971 – Design Space presents “Echo: Reconstructing Sculptures”; a project by Alanood Obaidly, Lina Ahmad and Patrick Lichty. The idea is to create one or more virtual sculptures to create a sculptural space in Augmented Reality using holograms for the Microso Hololens. The project has entailed the creation of the sculpture maquette(s) (Obaidy), modelling (Ahmad, Lichty) and programming (Lichty) to allow this piece to reside in the 1971 Design Space.

About ECHO:

ECHO DUBAI is the region’s first multi-sensory festival where Art Design Technology Event intersect to provide a platform for local and international businesses, brands and minds to connect and collaborate.

This year’s edition will launch in Dubai, taking place from the 14th to the 16th December in Dubai’s Design District ‘d3’, under the theme, “Interacting with the future”.

The first of its kind in the Middle East, a forward-thinking event, ECHO Dubai – art, design, and technology festival will focus on advanced technologies through artistic forms as well as a variety of sound, visual and digital mediums, installations and performances.

Ideas will be shared, projects will be developed and new concepts will echo in Dubai – facilitating opportunities for exchange and collaboration among artists, arttech enthusiasts, designers, musicians, engineers, and scientists.

The 3-day Festival will include an expo showcasing immersive installations by local and international exhibitors, a conference to exchange knowledge and generate new ideas within the industry; workshops across a range of artistic and creative disciplines hosted by international experts; and a sound festival that combines leading musical talent with audio-visual technology, to offer a truly immersive experience.

Built on the idea that Dubai makes dreams happen, MICE has had a long dream of creating an event that merges and echoes the best of the Design, Art, Technology and the world of sound.
