Exploring Art and Technology at the intersection of Society
The cluster encourages innovative and exciting approaches to creative technology research. It will be investigating positive outcomes that can support individual practice, communities and creative industry outputs. As a network of critical friends, the cluster will act to help share knowledge, support individual inquiry, development of artefacts and foster co-operative projects inside and outside the institution. The cluster will look at both analogue and digital technologies.
Themes of (though not limited to):
- Working with and visualing Data / Libraries
- Wearable Technology / Creative Technology in Environment
- Sound Art and Sound Objects
- Open Source Solutions
- Rapid Prototyping
The cluster will be an inclusive cross-disciplinary ‘Community of Practice’, to foster and share knowledge, creation of new tools and methods, and support primary research with new technologies. It encourages opportunities for staff to present work, proof of concepts and papers, with the intention of running an unconference / workshop ‘jams’ during the year to facilitate healthy dialogue and exchange of practice based research.
