All About Imaging: Transactions

Co-Chairs: Sophie Triantaphillidou, Heather Barnett

Transactions is an interdisciplinary symposium exploring new directions
in contemporary imaging from the perspectives of art, science and
technology. The symposium will bring together academics, artists,
students and professionals working in contemporary imaging, to create
opportunities for knowledge exchange, demonstration and discussion.
Transactions aims to traverse discursive boundaries between disciplines,
to build shared vocabularies, mutual understanding and new synergies.
