Their varied and engaging work demonstrates that diversity in artistic mediums is truly borderless: from painting, drawing and sculpture to new media work, film, design projects, and performances; many of these disciplines expand and cross boundaries resulting in exciting new possibilities in an uncertain age.
The online exhibition is designed to stimulate flexible audience interaction– audiences can traverse and tour ‘Borderless’ in a variety of ways, searching via theme or medium, or randomly exploring the diverse work made in the department. It represents the creative solutions that have been adapted in what many consider restrictive times, replacing the traditional physical on-campus exhibition which draws over 500 visitors each year.
