Since January 2017, our MA and MFA students in Transdisciplinary New Media have been collaborating with ESAT (Escuela Superior de Arte y Tecnologia) based in Valencia, Spain.
Out of this collaboration the ‘Low Tech in Communications Project’ was established to create artistic initiatives by students from both schools, in which they analyze the new capabilities offered by low tech in the 21st century.
The readaptation of supposedly obsolete objects and the application of a second life to them, is one of the keys to understand this project supervised by PCA’s Associate Dean of Graduate Studies Klaus Fruchtnis along with Director of the R & D department of ESAT Solimán López.
The ‘Low Tech in Communication Project’ workshop was held on February 20 and 21, 2017 with students from Paris and Valencia at the ESAT headquarters.
Check out the progress of the collaboration on the Transdisciplinary New Media blog!
An exhibition of the works the two institutions have produced will be exhibited at the Espace F15 Gallery at PCA from April 24-May 5, 2017. The opening of the show will be held on Monday, April 24, 2017 at 6:30 pm with the Paris and Valencia students.
