Chair Person: Ian Gwilt
Presenters: Dew Harrison, Martin Rieser & Suzette Worden
This panel will explore the notion that contemporary creative practice is increasingly taking place in and between analogue and digital cultures. And that by enfolding the creative processes inherent within these two environments we can generate richly informed creative outcomes that build on the qualities of both digital and material culture. This working in and between digital and analogue environments, toward the generation of creative works is the essence of what the panel will discuss as cross or variable reality creative practices. The panel will consider the potential for making within and across digital/material environments through the presentation of their own research/practice.
