The Exhibitors

uGIF Xpress HACKatON by WARKS and Lab4Reality
uGIF Xpress HACKatON is an experience of creation of an express interactive experience where each one of the 100 participants will create a GIF inspired by himself. The GIFs will then be projected in the store Araña in Raval, to be part of its first collaborative digital exhibition. Among all the GIFs created, a design will then be chosen to be decomposed in two pictures and printed white tee shirts. This tee shirt will be the first piece of clothes created from a digital work, and it will be on sale in the store Araña, calle Riera Baixa 5.
