Crimea River – Internet Memes as a Genre of Online Communication (amidst the Russia-Ukraine Conflict) presented by Dr. Bradley Wiggins

The primary focus of the presentation is to explain how internet memes develop as a genre of online communication. Internet memes are remixed, iterated messages which are rapidly spread by members of participatory digital culture for the purpose of continuing a conversation. Applying Anthony Giddens’ structuration theory to the analysis of memetic development reveals that internet memes exist as artifacts of participatory digital culture. As artifacts they possess virtual physicality, social and cultural connections, and purposeful production and consumption.

Game Design and Interactive Cinema presented by Mr. Juraj Bohus, MFA

Rapid advancement in computing transforms traditional visual media storytelling and exercises our perceptual consciousness. The purpose of my research is to examine creative potential and ethical boundaries of emerging augmented and virtual reality, through development and analyses of an interactive storytelling game design. It is anticipated that the results from this exploration will enable visual media storytellers to enhance their creative and intellectual potential in the near future.
