The students exhibiting are graduating from the BA programme in Media Arts and the BA programme in Photography.  Describing the diversity of Mediaworks2004, Dr. Aine O'Brien, Head of the Department of Media Technologies, said "A rich body of work will be exhibited, covering a variety of genres and formats from documentary photography, experimental video and multimedia installation to radio, moving image drama and documentary."

Dr. O'Brien explained that the theme for this interdisciplinary exhibition is 'Storytelling', which is described by Dr Muiris Mac Conghail, Lecturer in Media Policy, as "The construction of the story and the manipulation of the various characters by the storyteller bring us to a vantage point that reveals the contours of a range of conclusions. We carry these with us in little memory satchels. We dip into these frequently when in real life situations and more often than not we draw from those satchels when in the cinema, the theatre, the art gallery, when reading books or watching television. Radio is another thing altogether for that medium is such a demanding one that requires of us, as a unique audience, to draw our own pictures and conjure up images from word and from sound clues." (from Tales by Muiris MacConghail).
