Symposium on human form in digital landscapes

This symposium event seeks to align research from DALab, connect the Performance Dress Hub, and engage a broad audience, internally and externally, in a critical approach to re-defining our physical selves in an era of digital duplicity and augmented overlay, debating the emerging aesthetic, craft and social realities of our future selves.
