Intermedia Arts
The Intermedia Arts Program focuses on conceptual, critical, and aesthetic explorations in artistic production, utilizing a variety of current technological means. In this program, students are encouraged to develop their own individual and diverse approaches to video, electronic, and digital arts. This artistic production is supported by the study of the history, criticism, and theory of these disciplines, with an emphasis on issues of representation, experimental approaches to art practice, changing notions of the performative, and the impact of technology on the way we understand, negotiate, and generate social space.

Attention is paid to the full range of technical options available to contemporary artists, and an understanding of the strengths and drawbacks of both "low-tech" and "high-tech" means. Within that context, students may utilize practices such as analog electronics, single-channel or installation video, web-based work, digital sound manipulation, image processing, interactive artworks, hypertext, simulation, and installation, and may explore their integration with more traditional art forms, including dance, performance, music, sculpture, photography, and painting.

Bridging departments in the Fine Arts Division, the Intermedia Arts Program aims to foster cross-fertilization and collaboration between disciplines and to encourage artistic explorations that fall outside the boundaries of traditional modes of production.
