As part of Digital Design Weekend, join us to experience new digital artworks created by students from the MA/MFA Computational Arts programme at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Discover artworks by the following students:

Evanescence, by Sofia Taipa
Evanescence is an interactive sculpture exploring the potential for the collective transformation of human identity. Through the generation of a composite face, this continual process blurs the boundaries between individuals, as their faces are scanned and cumulatively carved into a clay cylinder.

Tangible Illusions: The Soft Boundary of Life, by Huichuan Wang
This project blends art, computer vision, and physics simulations. Using MediaPipe Hand tech, it tracks hand movements, which influence dynamic virtual jellyfish-like creatures governed by a computational design library. These organisms respond uniquely to hand “touch”, blurring the lines between real and digital interactions.

Zed: Automata, by Yuxi Chen
Zed: Automata is a real-time drawing device designed around the character “Zed”. Balancing cuteness and mystery, nature and machinery, this project imbues the act of drawing with a sense of ritual and mysticism. Step into the canvas and engage with a pen plotter to witness real-time artistic creations.

Data Eco-Domain by Haiwen Zhu
The installation is a concept and methodology created from Haiwen Zhu’s uninhibited thoughts on the relationship between humans and ecology. It attempts to use ecological raw data to restore the human experience to the closed loop of nature, to strengthen perception and natural attributes weakened by reliance on the products of the modern age, and to feel the natural order of the interspecies with the same metabolic system.
