About Digital Salon

The Digital Salon is an online collection of new media projects by UW-Madison undergraduate and graduate students showcasing artistic and research-based projects that take digital form or rely heavily on digital technology in the production process.

Work includes videos, animations, graphic novels/essays, websites, blogs, podcasts, multimedia installations, infographics, posters, and more.

Every year in the spring, the best projects from the past year are displayed in an exhibition in College Library’s Open Book Café.

The Digital Salon is an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to showcase digital projects that they created in their role as students at UW-Madison. Work is curated by a committee of UW-Madison faculty and staff.

Projects accepted for the Digital Salon come from different disciplines, fields, and perspectives. They include a wide range of views and opinions. Inclusion in our Digital Salon is a recognition of the effective use of design. The views and opinions expressed in these works do not reflect the views or opinions of the Digital Salon, DesignLab, or UW-Madison. Views and opinions are always the creator’s own.
