The Centre for Art Tapes is pleased to present the 30th annual Media Art Scholarship Presentation. This exhibition, Hyper > Media > Paradise, is one of the most diverse uses of technology the scholarship has seen in its thirty years. The works include projection mapped ceramic sculpture, animation, analogue video, and mock holograms. For the second year the scholarship presentation is taking place within the CFAT facilities, exhibiting in the rooms in which the work was created. This years participating artists are: Andrea Thorne, Charvel Rappos, Ian Funke-McKay, Juss Heinsalu, Kate Grey and Keelin Jack.
