Trans-Media 2012

Trans-Media 2012
Thursday, June 7, 2012 - 4:15am to 1:45pm

ONE DAY CONFERENCE & END OF YEAR SHOW, incorporating Pitch your Project’School of Media and Film, Faculty of Arts, University of Winchester, Hampshire, UK

TRANS-MEDIA 2012 conference aims to promote and present the development and application of digital visualisation and technologies in media, games, apps, assets and marketing research.

Digital and social media are constantly diversifying in form and function at an accelerating rate. New forms of media engage with our personal and public world, transforming our interaction with people, nature, spaces and information. We in turn transform media; regurgitate it out to others with our own personal twist. We tamper with the technology that uses it; we break it, crack it, and transform how it was meant to be used, creating a new use, a new form. We respond easily and quickly to requests of personal information that we would never have dreamt of doing, we talk to strangers online and build virtual communities, source anything we like and have 20 or 30 strangers let us know what they thought of it. Digital and social media have transformed how we interact with our environments and each other – this conference aims to explore how far and how much further.

The School of Media and Film, Faculty of Arts, University of Winchester invites papers on the transformative power and nature of digital and social media.
