The Latin(o) American Digital Art Project, led by Claire Taylor, welcomes this month Ailsa Peate to the research team. Ailsa is currently a doctoral student at the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures at the University of Liverpool, working under Claire’s supervision.
Ailsa will be working as postgraduate Research Assistant for the Latin(o) American Digital Art during its interventions at the Digital Design Weekend 2015 at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Taking place over the weekend of Saturday 26 – Sunday 27 September 2015, the weekend celebrates contemporary digital art and design, including interactive installations, demonstrations of robotics, tinkering and inventive electronics, workshops, family activities and more.
Ailsa’s role will include helping staff the exhibition, answering enquiries, engaging with the public, and running activities. She will also take a hands-on role in many of the DIY activities we’ve got planned, so if you are popping in over the weekend, you’re bound to see her. You can also follow Ailsa on Twitter at @ailsapeate.
Tickets for the weekend are free and available from EventBrite.
