The Imaginary Voyage

The Imaginary Voyage is an investigation into a new type of opera that emerges from the digital world (Hugill & Scott 2013, 253). The research is described in Hugill, A. and Scott, L. (2013) ‘The Imaginary Voyage’, Digital Creativity 24/3, pp. 253-257.

She restores two visions at once: the avant-garde’s insistence that poetic form be politically motivated and not just ‘fun,’ and the conviction that freedom is possible ‘only’ when we admit that we are not free–Jennifer Moxley.

Project Hubs: A Home Base for Design Projects

The design project dance is a sloppy one. It involves a slew of email attachments, PDFs, PSDs, revisions, GitHub repos, staging environments, and more. And while tools like Basecamp can help manage all these moving parts, it can still be incredibly challenging to extract only the important bits, juggle deliverables, and see how your project is progressing.

Enter project hubs.
