The postgraduate design course in digital graphics pathway is concerned with virtual spaces and interactive environments. These are understood as the spaces of experience, and may include combinations of the real and virtual, the spaces of publication, time based media and the internet.
Interaction within spaces can operate at differing scales and levels of material intervention.
The contemporary cultural context of globalisation leads to all spaces becoming less physically site specific, and arising from this an imperative to redefine and rediscover the real meaning of place. Representation becomes central to this as both the site of design production and increasingly the site of its dissemination and discussion. In this way, the design of digital environments can be both the means to understanding our real experience of space or a means to explore other mixed or hybrid realities.
Recent projects in digital graphics include mixed reality urban systems, web interfaces, web- design and motion graphics.
