Seven specially-themed installation zones

Digital Archaeology rediscovers the key moments of digital creativity that are in danger of becoming lost for ever owing to the rapid developments in hardware and software since the 70s.

We Create examines the increasing shift of web audiences from content consumer to creative content producer and participant, using readily available digital tools which are often free to use.

Creative Spaces demonstrates how conventional notions of time, space and narrative can be re-imagined using digital tools.

Sound & Vision examines the digital musical revolution and introduction of digital technologies has come to influence not only the sounds we hear but the style in which we see them, changing the look and feel of music for ever.

Our Digital Futures presents a selection of some of today’s most experimental and future-focused artists working with communication technologies, virtual and augmented realities, and high-performance textiles. The projects span the worlds of cyborg and wearable technologies, drones, artificial intelligence, warfare and big data.

DevArt challenges what code can be, and what art can be. When developers use code to push the possibilities of creativity and technology, the result is a new type of art. It’s called DevArt and it’s made by a new type of artist.

Indie Games Space looks at videogames that have been created with generally little or no direct support from a videogame publisher. Often consisting of no more than a coder, sound and graphics artist, independent games now span many genres.
