ABOUT WAVES

WAVES Digital Art Exhibition is a bridge between students from four different universities internationally. The event is curated in collaboration with the University of Kent (UKC) in the UK, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore, Reims Conservatoire in France, and Ceruleum School of Visual Arts in Switzerland. Furthermore, this years exhibition showcased the student work on the Media Art Nexus display at NTU, and at the Jarman Plaza at UKC. 

The WAVES 2022 theme: Horizons: ecology, climate and wonders.

History OF WAVES

The WAVES events in 2018 and 2019 were originally live video art events. The event collected student artworks designed for projection-mapping onto the Gulbenkian Media Façade, and students and the public were invited to gather and engage with live art.

However in 2020, the pandemic and self-isolation mandates impacted this, meaning gatherings were prohibited. Therefore, the 2020 WAVES event was livestreamed online, allowing artists to still connect, and keep the event alive.

This year, we faced another challenge. The Gulbenkian Media Façade is no longer suitable for projection mapping, so we had to find a new location. We agreed that the Jarman Plaza would be a great location, at the heart of the Canterbury campus, so that’s what we did. The event has also been expanded to include artwork from the Reims Conservatoire and Ceruleum School of Visual Arts.
