Why study Computation Arts?
When you study Computation Arts, you become part of a visionary digital program that explores the intersection of design, art and technology. Break new ground with wearable computing or intelligent textiles. Create pieces or installations that straddle both the physical and virtual world using a computer screen, networked computers, audio and video.
Our studios provide spaces to unleash your creativity and ability as an artist. Utilize professional equipment in our labs and studios. You may even have a chance to participate in research for the Hexagram Centre. As a Computation Arts student, you’ll learn to develop your own technologies to make your digital art a reality. You will also:
- Study the cultural and political implications of a society that is increasingly wired and networked
- Learn to re-imagine objects, narratives and the physical environment through the use of digital technologies
- Learn to integrate electronics, sensors, and physical computing into digital artworks
After graduation, you’ll leave with the knowledge, skill and passion to succeed in various branches of the cultural sector, pursue graduate studies, or form your own studio.
