"Now in it’s fourth year, the Digital Design Weekend explores and promotes contemporary digital art and design and presents cutting edge work and research projects, giving audiences the opportunity to meet the artists, designers and researchers and find out more about processes while engaging in dialogue, debate and the creation of culture."
(The V&A, 2015)
This very high profile event attracted an estimated 9,000 visitors over two days. It was absolutely exhausting to present and explain the Experience Temple Works project so many times but the response of the public was so overwhelmingly positive that the effort seemed completely worthwhile.
The event also provided an excellent opportunity to network with other scholars with an interest in practice-led research. A collaborative funding application across three different universities and an invitation to deliver a research seminar at the University of Glasgow were both a direct result of contributing to this event.
