17th Annual Sci-Fi + Fantasy Short Film Festival

May 21-22

Science Fiction + Fantasy Short Film Festival (SFFSFF) is an annual event organized by MoPOP and SIFF to celebrate new and innovative additions to science fiction and fantasy film arts. Now in its 17th year, SFFSFF screens animated and live-action sci-fi and fantasy films from around the world, which are then judged by nationally recognized film critics.

This hugely popular festival has sold out for the past ten consecutive years, filling the room with enthusiastic fans from the area’s sci-fi, fantasy and film communities. Last year we hosted our first-ever digital showcase, inviting fans around the world to see the latest and greatest in genre films. This year we have two in-person screenings in addition to a virtual option. SFFSFF’s films have also received international distribution and garnered interest from a wide network of moviegoers – even receiving Oscar nominations, museum exhibits, and more.

Sensory evening at MoPOP

May 12

Join us for our sensory programs, an opportunity for adults and families to experience the museum with reduced volume and light levels. Sensory programs are a free opportunity for anyone who can benefit from a low-sensory museum environment.

MoPOP Matinee takeover with community screenings from other local nonprofits in Sound + Vision Theater

From March to June, Three Dollar Bill Cinema is in the director’s chair, showcasing the best in queer horror shorts. MoPOP’s Sound + Vision Theater will play programming chosen exclusively by our partner for two screenings each opening day.

Take a break from our exhibits, see something you’ve never seen before, and find out what’s happening with our friends in Seattle. Screenings are included in your general admission ticket at no additional cost, making MoPOP Matinee Takeovers an easy and fun addition to your museum experience.

Awaken your curiosity about pop culture: MoPOP launches an online collection vault

While several hundred items from the MoPOP collection are on display in the museum at any one time, over 80,000 pieces are in our custody. MoPOP’s permanent collection – much of which is stored in a physical “vault” – spans the breadth of the pop culture canon and also showcases one of the finest assemblages of popular music-related artifacts that exist. We invite you to spark your curiosity about pop culture with our online collection vault which features a sampling of objects from our permanent collection, selected by our curators and organized into content areas.

Graphic Novels Student Clubs

MoPOP’s virtual Graphic Novels Club offers students a unique opportunity to connect with other nerds while cultivating a natural love for reading. Each month, we’ll use a graphic novel (or two) to explore social justice topics and issues such as LGBTQ+ and black histories, climate change, immigrant equity, and more. With separate tracks for readers ages 9-11 and 12-14, sessions will alternate between book discussions and creative art inspired by our favorite cartoonists and graphic novelists.

Meetings are held April through June via Zoom on Tuesdays from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. PT. Sign up for any (or all!) of the months you want. MAY DATES: May 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31

Contact High: A visual history of hip-hop

October 16, 2021 – March 2023

They say a picture is worth 1,000 words, and that’s especially true for one of the most language-sensitive musical genres: hip-hop. Contact High explores four decades of photography, from the late 1970s to the present day, documenting a revolution not only in music, but also in politics, race relations, fashion and culture. Through over 170 iconic images of hip-hop’s most influential artists (Missy Elliott, Jay-Z, Queen Latifah, Tupac, and more) – including contact sheets that give us rare insight into the creative process of a photo shoot – Contact High examines the evolution of hip-hop, connecting us with the experiences, identities and places that have shaped the world’s most popular musical genre.

Exhibition highlights include:

Exclusive footage of some of hip-hop’s biggest influences, including Missy Elliot, Jay-Z, Queen Latifah, Kanye West and Tupac Shakur.

Over 75 never-before-seen contact sheets ranging from iconic Notorious BIG portraits of Barron Claiborne to images of Aaliyah, the Wu-Tang Clan, Sir Mix-A-Lot and Kanye West.

The Dapper Dan jacket made for Rakim and MF DOOM mask.

In addition to photographs, artifacts from MoPOP’s permanent collection such as early rap fight flyers, Grandmaster Flash turntables, Tupac Shakur manuscripts, Flavor magazines, and costumes from Sha-Rock and The Notorious BIG, add to our understanding of hip-hop culture.

A short documentary featuring Contact High photographers at work and in conversation, including Barron Claiborne, Brian “B+” Cross, Eric Coleman, Estevan Oriol, Jorge Peniche, Jamel Shabazz, Janette Beckman, Joe Conzo, Jack McKain, Dana Scruggs and Danny Pick Up. The film is produced by the Annenberg Foundation and Radical Media.

MIT.nano announced its next round of seed grants to support hardware and software research related to sensors, 3D/4D interaction and analysis, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), and games . Grants are awarded through the MIT.nano Immersion Lab Gaming Program, a four-year collaboration between MIT.nano and NCSOFT, a digital entertainment company and founding member of the MIT.nano consortium.

“We are pleased to be able to continue to support research at the intersection of the physical and the digital through this collaboration with NCSOFT,” said Brian W. Anthony, Associate Director of MIT.nano, who is also a Principal Investigator in Mechanical Engineering and Institute of medical engineering and science. “These projects are just a few examples of how MIT researchers are exploring how new technologies could change the way humans interact with the world and each other.”

The MIT.nano Immersion Lab is a two-story immersive space dedicated to viewing, understanding, and interacting with big data and synthetic environments. Equipped with equipment and software tools for motion capture, photogrammetry, and 4D experiments, and supported by expert technical staff, this open-access facility is available for use by any MIT student, professor, or researcher, as well as by external users.

This year, three projects were selected to receive seed grants:

Ian Condry: Innovations in Spatial Audio and Immersive Sound

Professor of Japanese Culture and Media Studies Ian Condry explores spatial sound research and technology for video games. Specifically, Condry and co-researcher Philip Tan, researcher and creative director at MIT Game Lab, hope to develop software to add “crowd roar” to online gaming and esports so players and spectators can hear and participate. in the sound.

Condry and Tan will use object-based mixing technology from the MIT Spatial Sound Lab, combined with tracking and playback capabilities from the Immersion Lab, to collect data and compare various approaches to immersive audio. Both see the project leading to fully immersive “real-life” gaming experiences with 360-degree video, or blended games where online and in-person players can be present at the same event and interact with players. performers.

Robert Hupp: Immersive athlete training technology and data-driven training support in fencing

Seeking to improve the training, practice, and training experience of athletes to maximize learning while minimizing the risk of injury, MIT assistant coach Robert Hupp aims to advance the pedagogy of athletics. fencing using extended reality (XR) technology and biomechanical data.

Hupp, who worked with staff at the MIT.nano Immersion Lab, says preliminary data suggests that technology-assisted practice can make a fencer’s movements more compact and practice in an immersive environment can improve techniques. reactive. He spoke about data-driven coaching support and athlete training at an MIT.nano IMMERSED seminar in September 2021.

With this seed grant, Hupp plans to develop an immersive training system for self-paced learning for athletes, create a biofeedback system to support coaches, conduct scientific studies to track an athlete’s progress and to advance the current understanding of adversary interaction. He envisions the work impacting athletics, biomechanics and physiotherapy, and that the use of XR technology for training could expand to other sports.

Jeehwan Kim: next-generation human/computer interface for advanced AR/VR games

The most widely used user interaction methods for AR/VR games are gaze and motion tracking. However, according to Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering Jeehwan Kim, current state-of-the-art devices fail to deliver truly immersive AR/VR experiences due to limitations in size, power consumption, noticeability and reliability.

Kim, who is also an associate professor of materials science and engineering, offers a microLED/pupillary dilation (PD)-based gaze tracker and an electronic, skin-based, controller-less motion tracker for the human-computer interface. Next-gen AR/VR. Kim’s gaze tracker is more compact and consumes less power than conventional trackers. It can be integrated into transparent screens and could be used to develop compact AR glasses. The e-skin motion tracker can adhere imperceptibly to human skin and accurately detect human movements, which Kim says will facilitate more natural human interaction with AR/VR.

This is the third year of the MIT.nano Immersion Lab gaming program start-up scholarships. In the program’s first two calls for proposals in 2019 and 2020, 12 projects from five departments received $1.5 million in combined research funding. The collaborative proposal selection process by MIT.nano and NCSOFT ensures that awarded projects develop advances with industrial impact and that MIT researchers are exposed to NCSOFT’s technical partners for the duration of the seed grants.
