Trending Topics: Digital Visual Culture
17:00-20:30Utrecht | SETUP HQ
Around January 2011, a team of New Media and Digital Culture students published a beautiful online magazine named 'Digital Visual Culture'. The magazine covered topics like participatory video, algorithmic video art, face recognition and animation. #DigitalVisualCulture was trending these days and many scholars and students published articles and papers on this fascinating topic.
This fall, digital visual culture seems to become a trending topic in Utrecht again. Impakt organizes a brand new festival on (digital) visual culture from October 24-28th and SETUP opens an expo about 'The New Aesthetic'. Can we make #DigitalVisualCulture trending again?
NewMediaStudies.nl and SETUP invite students, scholars, artists, professionals and hobbyists to realize this goal. Strategy: an inspiring friday night with a mixture of academic research, short presentations and creative exposition openings. We invite both short 140 seconds presentations and more serious "academic work in progress" on Digital Visual Culture.
