New Media Art

About the New Media Art Concentration in Studio Art

New Media Art is an interdisciplinary and collaborative discipline that focuses on our relationship with technology, visual culture and performance in contemporary art. This practice is rooted in the traditions of avant-garde processes and experimental art-making and responds to the rapid pace of technological development.

Students in our program work closely with dedicated faculty and technicians to explore diverse methods of making in both the virtual and physical world. Projects challenge tradition and embrace new forms of aesthetic thinking, while all courses emphasize artistic excellence, active learning, and socially engaged practices. Students in this major enjoy adjacency to disciplines across the college and access to both digital and analog tools. 

Whether it is installation, film and video, physical computing, net-art, performance, animation, immersive installations, sound, sensing devices, mapping, social practice, or participatory media, our students integrate the language of art and technology through an integrated and informed critical practice.
