Highlights from Beta Launch: A Guerrilla Open Mic


On February 10, 2017, Wireframe Studio hosted its first public event in a beta launch as co-founding directors continue to prototype the studio virtually and in materiality. Leading an innovative form of humanities-based inquiry that explores digital media through critically informed collaborative design practices, UC Santa Barbara Film and Media Studies Professors Laila Shereen Sakr and Alenda Chang established Wireframe Studio in 2017. 

Thanks to everyone who came, supported, and participated. Highlights include moments with Janet Walker, Greg Siegel, Alexander Champlin, Alenda Chang, Cristina Venegas, David Novak, Bishnupriya Ghosh, Zaveeni Khan-Marcus, Ziyad Marcus, Jiahong (Melinda) Guo, and Felice Blake.
