Start date: 1 November 2015
In support of the Scottish town of Paisley’s ambition to be UK City of Culture in 2021, the UWS Creative Media Academy and New Media Scotland’s Alt-w Fund with investment from Renfrewshire Council have awarded a digital art commission to boredomresearch to make a new piece of work for the town. This collaborative project aims to be an innovative part of Paisley's Heritage Asset Strategy and seeks to engage, reinvent and re-imagine aspects of the town's heritage for the digital age. This project will be a pilot for a potential series of Creative Media Academy projects that explore the interface between art, technology and research.
boredomresearch will undertake a series of documented workshops with UWS students & staff, New Media Scotland and other cultural stakeholders as they develop their work.
