Emma Westecott: Critical Game Making

Digital games are an increasingly significant contemporary critical form in which makers express models of gameplay that make meaning beyond the context of pure entertainment. Game culture is pervasive and amidst a wider technological context that invites all our active participation provides one setting for the rise in creative expression evident across digital existence.

Starting from a feminist perspective situated in an art and design university, this talk explores a set of lenses to approach critical making practices in games. The hope is that the approaches discussed may offer frameworks applicable across the digital diaspora.

Angelika Seeschaaf Veres + Greg Sims: 3D Design – Digital and Material Interplay

This research explores current and future implications of 3D digital technologies in design processes as it redefines our relation to objects, experiences and environments. Product Designer Angelika Seeschaaf Veres and Jewellery Designer Greg Sims bring their unique perspectives on this topic by elaborating on the potential within the liminal space of the digital and the material. The research discourse will map new cultural and social trajectories considering: Usercentred design & product customization, digital fluency and meaningful making.
