Sean Arden is an artist /film maker holding a Master of Applied Arts in Media from Emily Carr University. He has over 12 years experience implementing experimental technologies for the arts. Animation, video installation and photography have historically been Sean’s focus. More recently his research into stereoscopic 3D communication techniques, positions Sean’s practice with stereoscopic video, photography and their tools into a discourse around media arts. By exploring the subtleties of the effects of 3D, a new form of more physical communication emerges in relation to the viewer, especially in an installation context. Arden’s work has been exhibited internationally and locally at the Western Front, New Forms Festival, Charles H Scott Gallery and Your Kontinent Media Arts Festival.
