Today sees the launch of the University of the West of Scotland’s (UWS) leading edge digital third space UWS.io.
Over the past year we’ve been working with UWS Media Academy staff and students to create a new interactive platform for their work.
Led by Professor Nick Higgins, the project has brought in leading industry experts to develop experimental cross-media work across a series of practical workshops focussed on how a new generation of digital creatives conceive of new work, produce it and distribute it.
The first two editions of UWS.io have premiered at the 360D conference. Entitled River and 2.4km, they offer visitors a sonic exploration of the River Ayr and a multi-media investigation into life around a nuclear reactor. More editions are planned for later this year.
