Imagined Landscapes Symposium


New media landscaping

Imagined Landscapes is a two day symposium (26-27 October) presented by Cumbria Institute of the ArtsÂ’ Centre for Landscape and Environmental Arts Research (CLEAR) in association with the Brera Academy, Milan. The symposium considers the work of leading international practitioners working between and across art forms and with new media technologies to create and explore imagined landscapes.

The broad aim of the symposium is to examine the ways in which the artists
explore the notion of the imaginary through their work and to critically reflect on how such works can help us to understand our relationship with landscape and the environment, opening up a site for critical exchange and creating opportunities for future practical exploration and theoretical engagement.
