University of Aberdeen - A digital take on everyday life

April 24, 2008

Research into secret prisons in Afghanistan, a sci-fi movie assembled from CCTV footage, and ball bearings used to represent deaths reported on the web are all part of a major conference on digital technology to be held at the University of Aberdeen on 25-26 April. The "recoded" conference is part of a joint venture between Aberdeen and Peacock Visual Arts, the main contemporary visual arts organisation in the North East of Scotland. Co-organiser Kriss Ravetto-Biagioli, senior lecturer in film studies, said: "The new media is perhaps the most discussed field in the arts and humanities today, reflecting the way in which digital technologies have revolutionised the practice of everyday life."
