Report on Digital Art at the V&A

The Digital Design Weekend at the Victoria and Albert Museum which took place last Saturday and Sunday was a resounding success, with over 9,000 visitors to the exhibits over the course of the weekend. The weekend brought together academics, practitioners, designers, creative industries, curators, and more, who all presented their work in a variety of formats.

Claire Taylor’s Latin(o) American Digital Art Project participated in the event, alongside a myriad of other projects, including Tangible Memories and Pararchive. Also of note was the fact that there were several projects from Mexico, including Laboratorio para la Ciudad, Centro de Cultura Digital, and Laboratorio de Arte Alameda, amongst others.

A launch event was held on Friday night, which brought together all the projects for roundtable discussions, and for the launch of the publication, Crafting our Digital Futures.

During the weekend, Claire’s project presented This Too Shall Pass// Affective Cartographies, the multimedia art work developed by Artist in Residence, Brian Mackern, during his residency in Liverpool in 2014, as part of the Cities in Dialogue series of interventions. Members of the public could play around on the artwork, and there was lots of really positive feedback provided

As well as the artwork itself, there were also artwork postcards available, which went like hot cakes!
