HIGHRISE | An Open-Source Multi-Media Re-Mix Project

Earlier this week, Highrise made its debut at the 51st annual New York Film Festival as part of the Convergence Program. The project is an interactive, open-source online installation/documentary/film/experiment that explores vertical living around the world. A collaboration of National Film Board of Canada and The New York Times Op-Docs, the interactive experience will launch in the New York Times soon.

The project explores a 2500 year history of vertical living by utilizing digital media. The story is being told by pushing all limits of media genres: bringing together different people to collaborate and share ideas; remixing life with art, cinema with the web and creating a participatory, interactive and networked experience, that will ultimately transform our physical space, our neighborhoods, our cities, our urban landscape.
