Experimental Arts: Studies in Material Thinking SMT Volume 8

The National Institute for Experimental Arts (NIEA) has partnered with Studies in Material Thinking (SMT) to produce a special issue of the SMT journal based on NIEA's 2011 Experimental Arts Conference.
SMT Volume 08
Experimental Arts

The term "Experimental Arts" designates a field of research and practice characterised by innovative transdisciplinary thinking, boundary crossing and collaborative investigation. This issue of SMT profiles a range of creative projects in this field, along with analysis of experimental arts as a site of discovery, generating insights and practical strategies in relation to current technological, social and environmental issues. Edited by Jill Bennett, Ross Harley, Douglas Kahn and Paul Thomas of the National Institute for Experimental Arts, College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales in association with Nancy de Freitas, School of Art and Design, AUT University, Auckland.
