Programme leader Dr Simon Katan explains: “What binds this collection of works together is that each of them constitutes an integral engagement with computation and responds to the challenge of how to make art through code.

“This is the first graduate show for BSc Digital Arts Computing. The degree was conceived to nurture a new generation of artists who are not only conversant with computational processes and techniques, but also develop a critical understanding of the socio-economic effects of computation and its expressive potential within the world of art.”
