Exhibition: Feedback, University of Brighton Gallery, Brighton, until July 8 2012

Those anticipating invention from a Digital Media Arts course in Brighton are unlikely to be let down by this show.

Hungarian, Cypriot and Mexican prodigies join artists from closer to home for a flourish of diversity, including biofeedback mechanisms by Stavros Siamptanis, digital footprints from Agnes Szlahotka, webcams and utopias overseen by Sharon Haward and a series of talking eyes inspired by the concept of the eyes as windows to the soul, conceived by Doug Lyon.

In the Latin quarter, Carlos del Salto, an information designer, recreates the near-death experience of Mexican arts and crafts master Pedro Linares, channeled through Alebrijes, a traditional Mexican art style involving monster footprints. Tread carefully.
