#Digital Media

Digital Media create virtual worlds, change our communication habits, the way we live together and how we treat personal data, and they enable new business models and media branches. Research on this topic analyses applications and implications – from social aspects to IT security.



Investigates how characteristics of stop-motion animation and motion-capturing can be conflated with virtual reality in order to enrich the current art discourse.
