This presentation will look at how we negotiate the mixed-media, multi-platform environment, addressing some of the ways in which we join the dots of contemporary experience, and find meaning and purpose for our thoughts and emotions.

Though the era of social media and digital culture has changed our world irrevocably and raised complex questions about how humankind negotiates its condition, storytelling and visualisation still play an increasingly important part in making sense of the world.

Then, of course, there is our old friend animation – previously marginalised and undermined, but now thrust centre-stage – a moving-image practice with utopian ideas. Using the concept of inter-animation, the talk will explore contemporary sense-making, creativity and idealism.
