Track That Travel: Shared_Studios - Portals to Countries and Creativity

Track That Travel: Shared_Studios - Portals to Countries and Creativity

As if walking into a golden box didn't feel magical enough, once I stepped through the draped center part of its wispy black curtains, an enchanted travel nostalgia fell over me. Immediately I had been transported from the sidewalk of my Colorado University campus to Berlin, Germany. Three gentlemen sat across from where I stood, their bodies so closely to scale that it felt like we were in the same room. Shared_Studios had set up one of its portals next to the Library, but I felt like I was in a German cafe. With starstruck and giddy emotion, I joined another student from my city whom I had never met. Soon after, another peer joined us. The quality of the audio-video technology made the conversation effortless, because it was as though our parties were face to face.

UCCS Communique: How I traveled the world without leaving campus

A gold shipping container gleamed in the sunlight near University Center on Monday as I approached with anxious excitement and curiosity wondering where I would be transported in just a few moments.

I learned about the Global Portal project created by Shared Studios when the container was situated at The Pioneer’s Museum downtown, but I never seemed to be able to make time to experience it for myself. So, when I discovered that the portal would be installed on campus, I could not let this second opportunity pass me by.

For the first time since the gold shipping container appeared outside of the Pioneers Museum, its owners have given a glimpse of its purpose.

On Saturday afternoon, the inside of the container served as a concert venue for members of the band Mo' Mungus - Ed "Archtop Eddy" Parsons, Gerard Mali and Claude Petersen. Their audience was not their regular Colorado Springs crowd, though. Instead, the band played in live time for Norma and Herardo, a pair of friends dancing in an identical space in Mexico City.
