The show brings together Networked and Lens-Based digital media and presents work across an expanded diversity of disciplines. To reflect the breadth of media practices within the department, the graduation show is an ambitious co-operation between TENT, V2_Institute for the Unstable Media, and WORM and showcases work that ranges from short films, to radio broadcasts of an encrypted narrative, to steam powered analogue ‘holograms,’ to many other media-hybrids in-between.
