The original title of the research project is “TransCoding–from ‘Highbrow Art’ to Participatory Culture”. Using the blog what-ifblog.net as our online platform, we we aim to explore our research topic: how we can involve an audience that is hitherto not available for the new arts in our project. We achieve this by targeting a demographic in the 20-35 age range that originally comes from popular culture in new arts via social media.
This arts-based research project has been awarded a three-year grant from the Austrian Science Fund to create a participatory arts project via social media, a multimedia solo show for violin, visuals and electronics and an audio-visual installation. The three art works will be interlinked and hopefully feed from each other in inspiration, engagement and vision.
Our partner university is the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz/Austria. Learn more about the arts-based research project by following this link:
