Substantial Motion is an international research network founded by Dr. Azadeh Emadi and Dr. Laura U. Marks for scholars and practitioners interested in cross-cultural exploration of digital media and philosophy. Members come together around shared interests in media archaeology, the migration of Islamic aesthetics, international contemporary art, media theory, and connections between Islamic and Western philosophy. The Substantial Motion Research Network will be a site for online publications, symposia and exhibitions, as well as a place of international collaboration.
Hop Studios and Substantial Motion worked collaboratively to create tools for geographically separate researchers to connect and communicate in creative ways. In addition, we built in some subtle but powerful design customization features to allow the exhibition curators to align the overall site palette and graphics with imagery from the current exhibition.
