    Dr. Adnan Hadzi is currently working as resident academic in the Department of Digital Arts, at the Faculty of Media and Knowledge Sciences, University of Malta. Hadzi has been a regular at Deckspace Media Lab, for the last decade, a period over which he has developed his research at Goldsmiths, University of London, based on his work with Deptford TV. It is a collaborative video editing service hosted in Deckspace’s racks, based on free and open source software, compiled into a unique suite of blog, cvs, film database and compositing tools.

    Through Deptford TV and Deckspace TV he maintains a strong profile as practice-led researcher. Directing the Deptford TV project requires an advanced knowledge of current developments in new media art practices and the moving image across different platforms. Hadzi runs regular workshops at Deckspace. Deptford.TV / Deckspace.TV is less TV more film production but has tracked the evolution of media toolkits and editing systems such as those included on the excellent PureDyne linux project.


    Adnan Hadzi (UK) is undertaking a practice-based PhD, ‘the author vs. the collective’, that focuses on the influence of digitalisation and the new forms of (documentary-) film production, as well as the author’s rights in relation to collective authorship. This interdisciplinary research combines sources and expertise from the fields of media and communication, computer studies and architecture. The practical outcome is Deptford.TV an online database drawing on the current regeneration process in Deptford, South/East London. Deptford.TV serves as a platform for artists and filmmakers to store and share the documentation of the urban change of S/E London.
