# TITLE: Strange Things Workshop
# SUPERVISOR: Dr. Katerina Psegiannaki, Dr. Francisco García Triviño, Dr. Lara Sánchez Coterón

Things and users become inseparable, at times. Still, users often ignore this strange occurrence. In order to explore this extraordinary condition, Sindefin Research Group hosts the Strange Things Workshop. A series of lectures will introduce participants to the workshop’s theme. At the same time, participants will design a video game focusing on subjects, their things and their space.


The workshop will take place in ASFA’s Annex in the region of Zagori, Greece. Any student of architecture or arts may join. There is no participation fee.
