Artistic and technical practices have much to offer one another, yet still so often remain curiously separate. In the MAT programmes we combine art making, design and performance disciplines with a high level of technical and engineering skills to produce research that asks new questions and seeks innovative solutions. We believe that collaboration and interdisciplinary research will contribute to solving the challenges presented by our changing and connected world.

For our inaugural one day symposium on Friday 16th September 09:00 - 17:30, we are discussing symbiosis in arts, media, science and technology.

This is a reflection on how research observes the changing link between ourselves, technology, and our perception of the world. We will discuss the broad research conducted within MAT programmes at QMUL and how this research is adding to the dialogue of change.

To investigate this concept on the day, conversations around digital arts, empowerment and associated research methodologies hope to build an understanding of current research and uncover future avenues of exploration within the symbiosis of Media, Arts, Science, and Technology.

Speakers include:

  • Bill Gaver, Professor of Design and head of the Interaction Research Studio at Goldsmiths, University of London
  • Hannah Redler, Independent Curator | Nick Bryan-Kinns, Reader in Interaction Design, QMUL
  • Saul Albert, PhD Researcher in Cognitive Science Research Group, QMUL
  • Pollie Barden, Lecturer in Product Design and Researcher in Creative Technologies at University of Sussex
  • Sara Heitlinger, Researcher Co-Investigator on Connected Seeds and Sensors at QMUL
