Expanded Artforms

Wednesday, October 21st, 2020

For the Sound & Image Festival, students from the MA Digital Arts programme at The University of Greenwich will use the Heritage Gallery as a type of artistic laboratory to experiment with a range of Expanded Art Forms. As opposed to a set exhibition, the space will be used as a testing ground to explore the potential outcomes of multiple mediums, overlapping territories and collaborations.  The ethos of the MA Digital Arts is one that embraces multimedia and interdisciplinary approaches in order to discover new and unknown possibilities. 

This event is part of the Greenwich Sound/Image Festival.

MA Digital Arts

Sanja Dudek, Eduard Fadgyas, Yi Ting Liong, Ashley MacLaughlin, Mateo Monje Shefford, Boris Monteiro, Oliver Paviour-Silcock, Megan Swaffer & Daniela Zaharieva.
