Digital Arts

The Department of Digital Arts/Ruth Schnell is a site of artistic education and research, where new fields of practice are explored with a critical approach to technologies that shape our perception and understanding of reality.

The primary objectives of the 2020 summer semester at the Department of Digital Arts were to develop hybrid formats, investigate the mechanisms and effects of dislocated networked environments, and to perform artistic-experimental design and production processes via co-presence in cyberspace, in the absence of a shared physical and haptic space.

For the Angewandte Festival 2020, participants developed corresponding presentation formats – from performances, live streams, and mixed reality scenarios as snapshots from their digital studios to virtual interventions and real-time processes – under the title “remote sandbox”.

In the SCHAURAUM Angewandte at the MuseumsQuartier/Q21, the works are brought together in a spatial setting. Insights into the production, sketches, and artistic implementations from the projects manifest as a media collage. “remote sandbox: manifest” will be on display beyond the duration of the Angewandte Festival until Sunday, 28 June.
