For our inaugural symposium we are discussing symbiosis between arts, media, science and technology. This is a reflection on how research observes the changing link between ourselves, technology, and our perception of the world. We will discuss the broad research conducted within MAT and how this research is adding to the dialogue of change. To investigate this concept on the day, conversations around the nature of interactivity, empowerment and associated research methodologies hope to build an understanding of current research and uncover future avenues of exploration within the symbiosis of media, arts, science, and technology.
It’s a free event and you should register, you might be inspired and have a good time!
