Last December 3 artists were working at The University of Salford, as part of the ScreenLab artist in residence initiative by Elliot Woods and Kit Turner. The initiative aims to explore modes of perception and interaction under the theme 'Future of Broadcast'. The invited artists, Kyle McDonald (USA), Joanie Lemercier (France) and Joel Gethin Lewis (UK) spent over 2 weeks developing open source tools and methods for future students and artists (on and off campus) to remix and re-use. This process also included contributions from a group of talented on-campus students within the arts and art-technology crossover and students who were involved with not in learning, but also in the creation of new digital media techniques.
