What is Digital Futures OPEN SHOW?

The Digital Futures OPEN Show is an annual exhibition where we show our best and most interesting work that’s happening RIGHT NOW. The collection of work presented is intended to represent a survey of current ideas, concepts, themes, theories, tools, techniques, and trends being explored by the Digital Futures community. Last year’s inaugural OPEN Show was a big success and we’re excited to do it again.

OPEN comes from the fact that this call is open to our whole community. The show will include works from current Digital Futures undergraduate students, graduate students AND faculty. Works include physical computing prototypes, data visualizations, digital entertainment, games, wearable technology, interactive installations and performances. For anyone who has asked the question “What IS Digital Futures anyway?” - we’re hoping this exhibition will continue to provide some answers.
