Random planet: Played fictions laboratory
From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. IVAMlab 1
PLANETA RANDOM: The Played fictions laboratory falls within the realm of the Art and Context Programme and emerges from the research of artists that form part of the programme, some of them permeated by fiction or fantasy.
Through play and the digital image, in this workshop we will consider the possibilities of fiction and fantasy to create thought and imagine other possible worlds. Through various activities, we will address some of the themes that permeate the work of the artists from the programme, where we will support each other to build our own fiction.
For one week, the participants will design and build an environment, a community and a series of their own characters from activities that will enable us to think and collaboratively build the fiction we want to inhabit and play. This fiction will also help us to think about our reality, the immediate context and the problems that cut through it.

This workshop takes place with the participation of young people from the Residential Care and Youth Justice Service of the Directorate General of Childhood and Adolescence of the Vice Presidency and Council of Equality and Inclusive Policies of the Valencian Government.
The workshop will be led by Elena Sanmartín Hernández, with the support in mediation of Alejandro Ocaña and the digital collaboration of Pablo Oria Lorente.
Elena Sanmartín Hernández situates her work in the bisector between cultural management, artistic mediation and education. She is interested in exploring ways of translating and transferring the methods of contemporary artistic creation into useful tools for the understanding and resolution of contemporary problems and challenges. She understands the processes of mediation, education and cultural management as creative, collaborative and supportive spaces which help processes and artistic creation to permeate other bodies and spaces, and vice versa. She graduated in Fine Arts from the Polytechnic University of Valencia, and has completed the PERMEA masters: Education and Mediation through Art by the Consorci de Museus de la Comunitat Valenciana and the University of Valencia. She also completed the University Masters in History of Contemporary Art and Visual Culture from the Complutense University of Madrid and the Reina Sofia National Art Museum.
Alejandro Ocaña is an artist and educator living in Valencia. His projects are based on group events and parties, in addition to other leisure-related situations. He creates a production whose main aim is the participation of others and the use of humour, giving way to a succession of group activities that seek to be considered as “silliness” and/or “nonsense”. Alejandro Ocaña graduated in Fine Arts from the Polytechnic University of Valencia and has completed the PERMEA masters: Education and Mediation through Art by the Consorci de Museus de la Comunitat Valenciana and the University of Valencia.
Pablo Oria Lorente is a multidisciplinary artist specialising in digital creation. His main study goal addresses the relationship between artificial intelligence and the human being. Through video essays, digital image creation and 3D environments, he puts into practice concepts related to technological obsolescence and errors, virtuality and the proposal of a human-machine affectionate emotional relationship. Pablo Oria graduated in Fine Arts from the Polytechnic University of Valencia where he later studied for a Masters in Visual Arts and Multimedia.
