Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA) hold international conferences annually. It is a community of academics and practitioners, which one of the organisers Emeritus Prof of Computing, London South Bank University, Jonathan Bowen has encouraged me to join and submit papers to present (if selected) at EVA London 2019. I plan to do this. Firstly with my MA research paper ‘Digital to Physical Built to Last: Will functioning digital art be part of our future cultural legacy’, and an introduction to my PhD project ‘Making the absent object present: Towards a holographic Museum of Modern Art (hMoMA)’.
It is indeed a small world. I was pleased to note that my MA Tutor Dr. Gareth Polmeer, now on the academic staff at the Royal College of Art, is one of the other people I know who is involved. Also Dr. Nick Lambert, Head of Research at Ravensbourne. I also noticed that Prof. Carla Gannis (Pratt Institute, New York) has presented in the past, who I met at the Lumen Prize, which is also promoted at the EVA conference, involving a fellow MA FAD graduate Jack Addis.
EVA London’s Conference themes include the use of new and emerging technologies in the following areas (to be broadly interpreted):
- Digital Art
- Data, Scientific and Creative Visualisation
- Digitally Enhanced Reality and Everyware
- 2D and 3D Imaging, Display and Printing
- Mobile Applications
- Museums and Collections
- Music, Performing arts, and Technologies
- Open Source and Technologies
- Preservation of Digital Visual Culture
- Virtual Cultural Heritage
I have highlighted my particular areas of interest for my PhD research.
This has been an important discovery for me, as Jonathan Bowen thinks it will be a supportive community for my PhD. Thank you Jonathan.
