In this lecture, Professor John Sturgeon spotlights some fortuitous shifts and challenging explorations of forty-plus years of practice amid the exponential rise of electronic/digital media as a means to "translate" artistic and personal content.

Seeing Stanley Kubrick's 'Dr Strangelove' in 1964 inspired John Sturgeon to follow his passion for the arts. He is an artist-poet, practicing in digital media: video, installation and performance. A Professor of Cinematic Arts at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, he is the US-UK Fulbright Scholar, 2012-13, at the University of the Arts London.
