    Imaginary Friends

    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2018)

    London, UK, 9 - 13 July 2018


    Jairo Zaldua & Nicola Green



    Where do the imaginary friends go when their human creators grow up? Imaginary friends are often associated with children, but what about adults? The role of the imagination is often discouraged from childhood - the wish to play and explore. Why have an imaginary friend? What purpose do they still serve? Where has the imaginary been in the story of your life? Can it be an antidote to loneliness, or is it the need for something other? Are you still intrigued? The aim of this on-going project is to create an interaction and dialogue with the public both online and also as a physical activity.
