  • Airea: Arts and Interdisciplinary Research

    Airea is a peer-reviewed, open-access, interdisciplinary journal operating at the nexus of intersections between inter, trans, and multi disciplinary artistic practices and research. It intends to map interdisciplinary links between forms of contemporary art and technology, with particular focus on developing digital practices. Initially conceived to publish the proceedings of sIREN's (Interdisciplinary Research Network) Arts and Digital Practices conference in 2017, this journal acts as a channel of communication between artists and practices; concepts and tools. In doing so, we hope to more firmly embed a critical framework of technology into contemporary arts discourse.
