This theme expands our understanding of art, site, narrative, aesthetics and ethics through diverse approaches to making. This research area draws on discursive histories, dynamic cultural traditions and contemporary creative expression across all forms of immersive media and technology, performance and material practices. Through digital domains and new and existing archives, transmedia researchers bring audiences and creators together across the ‘exhibitionary complex’ to explore and curate the creative ‘contact zones’ of the future.
The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
