Claire will be presenting the findings of her recent project on Latin(o) American Digital Art at the WiSPS 16th annual conference which will be held at the University of Warwick from 13-14 November.
Claire will be speaking at a Digital Project Roundtable organized by Kirsty Hooper. The roundtable will both showcase projects and talk about processes, pitfalls, and what has been learned
Entitled ‘The Latin(o) American Digital Art Project: Findings and Discussion Points’, Claire’s presentation will look at the experiences of the project in selecting and working with a variety of venues for new media arts events, and on the uses of social media for curation and engagement. With regard to the former, the presentation will discuss key issues that arise when exhibiting digital artefacts, including how components that exist in virtual space can be exhibited in physical space. With regard to the latter, the presentation will look at the advantages – but also the challenges involved in – capitalizing on the current boom in social media to encourage audiences to engage with digital artworks.
