Project Digital Device Screening (DDS) (from 2016)

This exploits the ubiquity of devices, hand-held and otherwise, to showcase work, and also to encourage active feedback. Evidence of viewing provided by participants in turn forms documentation of the event. The emphasis is on engagement, using technology and spaces which are readily available or underutilised, DIY and guerrilla approaches. The intention was to develop the method further for the post-pandemic period, where it seems likely that institutions will continue to be interested in blended dissemination, and mixing physical exhibition with online. Most recently, in June 2021, an open call was run and selections made from fifty submissions as part of Sussex Festival of Ideas.
