MA Design Specialising in Digital Graphic

 

Digital Graphics is concerned with virtual spaces and interactive environments. These are understood as the spaces of experience, and may include combinations of the real and virtual, the spaces of publication, time based media and the internet. Interaction within spaces can operate at differing scales and levels of material intervention.

In this way the design of digital environments can be both the means to understanding our real experience of space or a means to explore other mixed or hybrid realities.... [-]
