Electronic and Time-Based Art
|"Solar Sound Module" summer workshop, July 2009|
Electronic and Time-Based Art (ETB) is the newest area of study in the Department of Art and Design. In their research and art practice, ETB students explore the creative and expressive potential of electronic and time-based media such as digital video and sound, real-time computer graphics, interactive digital systems, virtual reality, physical computing and robotics. The goals of the program are to provide a transdisciplinary laboratory for the exploration and creation of new forms of art, the exchange of ideas and concepts across disciplines and the critical investigation of emerging technologies. The program’s curriculum promotes individual inquiry and collaboration across the different divisions and departments of the School of Visual and Performing Arts (such as Art & Design, Theater and Dance) as well as encouraging and supporting links to academic partners and resources outside of the school. These include, but are not limited to: the Envision Center for Data Perceptualization, the Department of Computer Graphics Technology and the English Department.
The area of Electronic and Time-Based Art currently offers an undergraduate minor and a 3 year MFA graduate program as part of the Department of Art and Design Studio Arts graduate program.
