Join us live on Twitter for a topical discussion on the physical and digital boundaries which are sometimes blurred within artistic disciplines.

About this event

As technology evolves, new ways emerge to inhabit imagined worlds. Boundaries are blurred between artistic disciplines, between physical and digital, between possible and impossible. Rayan Elnayal and Alice Labourel are two artists who draw on their architectural training to create fictitious spaces that explore our culture and humanity. SIA faculty member Leo Crane hosts a live discussion alongside this distinguished panel on Twitter Spaces to delve deeper into the topic. The SIA Twitter Space is a place for stimulating discourse and dialogue which is open to all.

Meet the panel

Rayan Elnayal, Architectural designer Rayan Elnayal is a Sudanese-British artist/designer based in London. She uses the skills she obtained from her architecture background to visualise and speculate on fictional spaces.
