‘Agni Salaru’: A sensory overload

Saturday, 5 May 2012 02:43 -     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}

‘Agni Salaru’ captures the imagination of the audience as they immerse themselves into a sensory wonderland which challenges the imagination through a multitude of creative, technology driven processes.

The closing reception invites a select audience to experience a range of multimedia work from students within the department of Interactive Media Design. These projects range through experimental video to animations and also interactive, user-based installations.

The work exhibited, challenges the user to be part of the creative process by being immersed in the possibilities of sound, rhythm, texture, light and colour. These multimedia projects evolved through many traditional creative thinking and problem solving methods.

Initial concepts beginning with a sketch, developed, selected and developed again – manipulated, treated and edited to produce a range of through-provoking and innovative statements about contemporary life and all that it provokes in us and around us.

The level of maturity, experimentation and sophistication is evident in each project showcased within ‘Agni Salaru’. In terms of creativity, these students have excelled on so many levels and I want to congratulate them on the excellent results achieved – a stimulating creative environment to be enjoyed by all.
