The session will explore the capabilities and limitations of different platforms to provide an informed understanding of the nature of digital space as well as looking at how it differs from physical reality. Attendees will discover a range of new digital mediums, from conceptual, technical, and practical perspectives, and will be provided with information of software used to create specific artworks.
