We accepted up to 12 participants from the age of 6 accompanied by at least an adult. From printed abstract black and white photographs, we imagined what creatures could live in these worlds, how they would feed, move and appear. We also drew a few sketches.

 Learning Objectives


We used iPads, computers as hardware and Photopea, Artitive Bridge and the Artivive App for the softwares. Once the creatures were imagined, the idea was to animate them on computers and an online image editor called Photopea. We created different frames and saved them as a GIF. This GIF was then exported on the online AR tool Artivive Bridge which enabled us to edit the photographs and the animated creatures and export them together. The participants could then use our Ipads (which already had the Artivive App installed on them) to animate their chosen photographs and witness their creatures come to life!

Location and Duration

These 2-hour long workshops were conducted by our cultural and digital mediators on Saturdays in Marseille, in our MEDIALAB, a multimedia laboratory for experimentation and democratization of digital, artistic and cultural practices located in la Friche la Belle de Mai.
This workshop is part of a program called [FAMILY]TECH, a free of charge activity for families which takes place every Saturday afternoon from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm.

Key Takeaways

These workshops were very well received by the public as a way to explore our imagination together and to see our creations literally come to existence !
