That's So 2069: Media Futures BA Media studies

That's So 2069...

That’s So 2069: Media Futures is an interactive exhibition that critically speculates how we envision the future based on the analysis of contemporary issues within society. It is an exhibition that includes elements from all modules taught over 3 years of BA Media Studies, and illustrates our favourite topics - from exploring the concerns surrounding the idea of Utopia to focusing on the shift from broadcast media to Web 2.0 (and even further), as well as future fashions, smart cities, render ghosts and artivism.
