Open call: The two-year graduate program Interface Cultures

03.06.2020 18:49

Arts Department of Media at the University of Arts and Design Linz calls for admissions for the program Interface Cultures for a study year 2020/2021.

The program's focus is on the development of human-machine, human-human, and machine-machine interaction and their applications in art, research, design, industry, and entertainment. Through interdisciplinary research and teamwork, the students, as researchers and artists, also develop new aspects of interface design, including cultural and social applications.

The themes elaborated under the Master's program include Interactive environments, interactive art, ubiquitous computing, game design, VR and MR environments, sound art, media art, web-art, software art, HCI research and interaction design.

The Interface Cultures program is an artistic-scientific course of study to give budding media artists and media theoreticians solid training in creative and innovative interface design. Artistic design in these areas includes interactive art, netart, software art, robotic art, soundart, noiseart, games, and storytelling, as well as new hybrid fields like genetic art, bioart, spaceart, and nanoart.

One of the guest professors at the Interface Cultures department is also Prof. Dr. Maša Jazbec, head of the DDTlab. She held lectures on Multimodal Interfaces - Critical Devise Augmented Systems in the WS 2018/2019 and Augmented Systems – Android Science in the SS 2019.
Some of the projects developed under her mentorship have been exhibited at the Ars Electronica 2019.

The deadline for applying is 19 June, 2020.
