Dematerial: critical debates in digital arts May/June 2010.
Dematerial and iRes invite you to participate in a series of events taking place across the South West region, which seek to stimulate and generate critical debates in digital arts. The events also aim to contribute to the next stage in the development of the digital arts within the region.
The events will take place at three locations across the region: University College Falmouth; Arnolfini, Bristol; Bournemouth University. There will be different speakers at each one of the events. Each event will focus on particular set of issues or identified area of practice, and all will invite open discussion on the complex relationship between the digital and the arts.
