Host of Dundee digital arts conference presenters revealed

A list of several speakers for this year’s Neon international digital arts festival has been revealed.

The two day Dundee-based conference will take place this November 11th and 12th at the Centre of Excellence in the University of Abertay.

Speakers at the conference will include creative director of digital arts organization Folly, Kathryn Lambert; multimedia artist Akinori Oishi; design duo Peter Thaler and Lars Denicke of Pictoplasma; and visual instrument tagtool producer, Matthias Fritz. 

"We are looking forward to building upon the success of last year's Neon conference. It is set to be bigger and better and I believe the quality of speakers reflects this,” said chair of the festival organising committee Donna Holford-Lovell.

“It is fundamental to get the views of those involved in the arts professionally and to examine their personal interpretation of this year's theme,” she explained.

“The eclectic mix of speakers will no doubt prove that the digital arts crosses many sectors and presents an exciting range of innovation and opportunity for all involved”
