Westminster Papers in Communication and Culture

"Westminster Papers in Communication and Culture (WPCC) is a peer–reviewed journal, published four times a year in hard copy and online.

WPCC recognises the interdisciplinary nature of the field of Media and Cultural Studies, and therefore deliberately encourages diverse methods, contexts and themes.

Particular interests include, but are not limited to, work related to Popular Culture, Media Audiences, Political Economy, Promotional Culture, New Media, Political communication, Migration and Diasporic Studies.

A major goal of the WPCC is to help develop a de–westernised and transcultural sphere that engages both young and established scholars from different parts of the world in a critical debate about the relationship between communication, culture and society in the 21st Century."

(Anthony McNicholas)

Archigram Archival Project: a digital resource of the speculative architectural design group

"The Archigram Archival Project (AAP) is a purely digital resource, displaying digital versions of works held in many different collections. The main collections are the Archigram Archive, held and run by Dennis Crompton and the Ron Herron Archive, held and run by Simon Herron, but work from other personal Archigram collections and public collections has also been made available through this current project. ...

The AAP focuses on the main Archigram period of 1961–1974, but includes all the projects, both before and after these dates, which have been included in the project list of the Archigram Archives at the time of doing the project. The main omissions from the Archigram Archival Project website are the films, television programmes and audio–visual material which for technical or copyright reasons cannot be included at this stage."

msdm: mobile strategies of display & mediation

"paula roush is an artist–educator–curator whose interests intersect practice–based arts research with critical cultural theory, and the role of the artist–theorist in contemporary media culture. She is senior lecturer of digital photography at the London South Bank University –where she teaches courses on the archive and youth subcultures, artists publications and self–publishing practices, performativity and surveillance space. She also teaches the theory module for the MA in Art and Media practice at the University of Westminster.

In 1998, she founded, msdm, a platform for art research whose projects reveal her interest for mobile strategies of display and mediation, the convergence of network practices and daily life, and the open intersection of different media, including para–architecture, sound, video, photography, text, graphic design, installation, videogames, internet..."

What is hypermedia?

"Hypermedia describes the new cultural and social forms emerging from the convergence of the media, telecommunications and computing. This convergence is driven by the adoption of digital technologies across these three sectors. The development of increasingly powerful personal computers is enabling the one–to–many broadcasting of the electronic media to be combined with the one–to–one interaction of the telephone. For the first time, people are able to participate within many–to–many forms of cultural and social communications. At present, hypermedia is being pioneered by companies, public institutions, community organisations and individuals using the internet and other forms of interactive media.

The process of development is advancing in two parallel ways. Firstly, hypermedia is being created which acts as a store of information to be accessed on request by individuals and a place where users can add their own material. This part of the development process involves the creation of digital versions of pre–existing types of cultural expression, such as text, graphics, audio and video. Secondly, the emergence of hypermedia leads to the invention of completely new cultural genres. For instance, using real–time conferencing programmes, people can enter into cyberspace to engage in direct communications with other users. This part of the development process involves the development of specifically new aesthetic practices, such as the design of virtual social spaces and the creation of interactive art installations.

In such instances, hypermedia is being developed to overcome the limitations of the existing mass media, such as their reliance on a homogenised and undifferentiated audience, and of the telephone, such as its lack of group interaction. As hypermedia is further developed, people will be increasingly able to select their own forms of cultural expression, distribute their own creations and exchange ideas directly with one another. While enjoying greater access to existing cultural forms, they will also be able to participate within the new forms of artistic and social expression. At the centre of this process will be skilled digital artisans who can pioneer the new hypermedia. This MA course is designed for the education of the innovators in the theory and practice of hypermedia."
