Time Based Media

Location: Hobart

Technology shouldn’t rule our creativity. Through playful experimentation and discovery, we find new ways of seeing and sharing our experiences and insights.

Explore the frontiers of art, create brave new experiences, and boldly go where no artist has been before. Through technology, you can explore vision, sound and space through the dimension of time.

Bring images and objects to life through animation. Capture the world with digital cinema. Craft meaning and visual poetry through video editing. Discover listening through sound art. Interact with the worlds beyond the screen through site-specific media installations.

Whether it unfolds online, through television or cinema, or in a prominent real-world spaces, time-based media is the dominant form of communication in the world today. We invite you to become a 21st century creative practitioner.
