Inspired by William Morris’s proto-ecotopian fiction News from Nowhere, HERVISIONS digital art studio presents a speculative public artwork and mobile-friendly game in response to the Radical Landscapes exhibition at the William Morris Gallery, exploring the natural environment and landscapes of Langthorne Park, Leytonstone. Produced in collaboration with Leytonstone Toy Library, the Youth Club at Worth Unlimited and local communities. This project aims to explore digital rewilding – connecting the hyperlocal ecology of Langthorne Park to the wider global Climate Emergency and exploring how boundaries between humans, nature and technology are dissolving. The work draws on themes of identity, social mobility, collective storytelling, and our relationship to place. In a series of workshops, local residents and young people worked with digital artists to imagine the future of Langthorne Park, set in a parallel universe. The results of the workshops are re-interpreted into an interactive site-specific mobile-friendly game.
