Surface City: A Participatory Workshop By Tivon Rice says
How does Seattle value its historic assets? Seattle-based artist Tivon Rice recently used the digital process of photogrammetry to create archives of fa├žadist architecture in the Capitol Hill and South Lake Union neighborhoods. The resulting images, 3D models, and digital animations explore the relationships between history, economy, and the built environment.

Workshop participants will work with Rice to identify a site in Seattle that exists at the intersection of the city's past and future, then join the artist in a photography field trip during which they will take hundreds of digital photographs to archive the site. Using photogrammetry, Rice will process and present the resulting image-assembly online and through social media.

Tivon Rice, a PhD candidate at the University of Washington Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media, has long been interested in the ways physical environments and mass media create images and, in turn, build histories around sites and communities. His recent projects have been exhibited in Seattle, Seoul, and The Hague with support from numerous organizations including the Fulbright Scholar Program, 4Culture, The Joan Mitchell Foundation, and The International Sculpture Center.
