The Lab of New Media for Visual Arts of the School of Visual & Applied Arts of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (GR) presents a special selection of students’ works on VisualcontainerTV (with free access online at www.visualcontainer.tv).
New Media is one of the main educational directions of the School of Visual & Applied Arts in Thessaloniki (along with Painting, Sculpture and Printmaking). The curriculum of the New Media Lab offers specialized courses on a wide variety of new media related topics and artistic practices, including video production, contemporary photography, animation, interactive installations, etc.
The compilation includes 11 videos created by students of the New Media Lab with various concepts, techniques and aesthetic forms. Experimenting with audiovisual narration, 3d animation, computer graphics, stop motion and performance the students lead us to their personal view of critical contemporary issues, describing and criticizing with perspicacity and sensitivity a mostly dystopian and depressing present. The works of the students presented here, have been created under the supervision of the teaching staff of the New Media Lab.
