Students from the MA Digital
Direction programme in the School of Communication present their 2020 Work in
From the deep ocean and the non-human to a fictional institution, an online club and the language of business, these projects ask us to question the future of digital storytelling.

What if digital time was an alternate currency? As an alternate reality game, our project invites the audience to explore the implications of this new world via a variety of digital artifacts and purpose built websites. This transmedia experience aims to magnify and speculate the systems of privilege and oppression manifested in our daily lives.

Midst Song Dynasty, people live in prosperity, businesses are thriving. Karaya in Quanzhou is decorating the city with its bold red blossom. The harbor is crowded with people from around the world. Our story starts from Quanzhou, a beautiful and historical city. A voyage set off from here, but ended in void, leaving priceless treasure to offspring.
