CoLab, the trans-disciplinary teaching/research nexus in the Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies, would like to hear from academics, postgraduate students or final year students who are interested in being part of our forward-thinking, experimental and diverse scholarly community.
Last month eight students from the Bachelor of Creative Technologies competed in the NASA Space Apps Challenge.
AUT and CoLab have a well-established partnership with the Documentary New Zealand Trust and hosted and sponsored the Screen Edge Forum at the City Campus on April 18 -19.
This year was no different, and it was great to hear passionate presenters discuss the various facets of producing, funding and making a screen-based production.
In order to support access, ongoing capability building, interdisciplinary opportunities and sustainability, a number of faculty based laboratories have recently been brought under the CoLab umbrella.
From March 20 – 23, 2013 AUT will host Animation Revelations, a three-day animation forum that will explore every facet of animation and showcase local and international talent. The event is aimed at industry and education bringing together Auckland-based production companies, industry organisations, tertiary educators, students, independents and collectives to look at and discuss animation.
The third issue, with a theme of 'interactivity', can now be read online.
From the Journal: Creative Technologies editor, Jennie Watts, "the seven papers that make up this issue are all based on ‘interactivity’ – a broad notion inviting myriad interpretations and applications across an emergent field associated with creative technologies. Indeed, the fluid nature of this field has become increasingly apparent to us as we worked on this issue."
CoLab is delighted to announce that the Auckland Council, through its Creative Communities Scheme has given financial support for three public workshops to accompany the interactive exhibition, Wandering Creatures by artist and CoLab member, Kim Newall.
