Welcome to the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Digital Salon! When I came into the library last week and saw the amazing artwork setup in our Open Book section, I immediately got online to find out if there was a web presence for the event. I was so happy that there was, because it meant I get to share it with all of you.

The Digital Salon showcases student media projects that are both artistic and research based with the main criteria of being created in a digital format or relying heavily on information technology in their production process.

When you arrive at the site, you’ll scroll down through the projects in alphabetical order. My favorite is The Griddle. I walked by it and thought it was an advertisement for a real restaurant in town, and I’m not ashamed to admit I was slightly disappointed when I realized I couldn’t go eat there.

To navigate to a specific project, you can either click on the title of the post, the See This Project link, or the Read More About this Project link. Each method will take you to the full page for that project. There you will learn more about the project, what the artist was trying to convey, and find any related items to the project (more images, video links, etc.).

I hope you’ll enjoy checking out these cool projects as much as I did. Go see them for yourself today!
