'Tune in for a journey through the unworldly and colourful screenscapes experienced by the artist.'

INFORMATION

Exhibition Statement

Digital screens are evolving into thinner, smaller and even flexible forms. As their presence multiplies, they have receded further away from our consciousness. Consequently, the creative potential of these surfaces passes unrealised. Existing as a suite of experiments, Screen As____ is a multimedia showcase of research that centres around designing with screens as opposed to designing for screens. Each experiment extrapolates the screen into the real world beyond the typical four-edged format. They inquire, investigate and reflect on the screen as a material space to revert our attention back to these seemingly immaterial surfaces.


Tune in for a journey through the unworldly and colourful screen scapes experienced by the artist.


This work is a self-directed honours research project completed within the Faculty of Design at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). Scan all other experiments on the project’s website: screen-as.com
