A short film documenting the process made by John Humphreys. It shows how a tour of Soho House and its collections was the catalyst for the group to start thinking about Utopia and Dystopia. Storyteller Gauri Raje then ran a workshop to get people engaged with their thoughts on Utopia and Dystopia and start to visualise them. Artist Melanie Tomlinson then facilitated the co-creation of a praxinoscope (a pre film animation device) over a further six sessions. The making process included a visit to Fab Lab West Bromwich at Sandwell College to lasercut part of the praxinoscope. Old and new technologies coming together.
