Research in the areas of digital art and design, film and media is structured into three key interwoven strands which give our research its strength. They are:

  • First: our philosophical/theoretical works foreground non-representational theory as a significant interpretive tool for understanding new media, visual/aural cultures, communication technologies and the creative industries.
  • Second: we produce intellectually rigorous, practice-based outputs in the form of critically acclaimed film, video, theatre, creative writing and live arts productions.
  • Third: we have a strong commitment to the role of the digital itself as archive, industry, web-science and social network.

Overall, our research includes work on cultural memory, identity, poetics, non-representational/discursive economies, augmented realities and contemporary media arts.
