Experimenta Make Sense: International Triennial of Media Art
BY RMIT Gallery | 08-Sep-2017
Both playful and challenging, Experimenta Make Sense asks audiences what it means to be human in an era of technological acceleration and disembodied communications. The exhibition features immersive work by leading international and Australian artists who engage directly with this conundrum.
