Course summary

The Art and Emerging Technologies MA explores experimental applications of creative technologies in art practice, the development of advanced digital skills, and their impact on society, culture, and the environment. You’ll be encouraged to consider technologies as an integral part of the creative process, embarking on a journey of exploration and seeking out innovative directions to expand and enrich your practice. This might include collaborating with technology, harnessing the potential of human-computer interactions, crafting narratives through transmedia techniques, fostering audience engagement and participatory cultures, creating interactive objects, and constructing and transforming physical and digital spaces. Studio practice and labs allow for the inventive use of advanced technologies, such as virtual and augmented reality, geolocation technologies, virtual production, photogrammetry, physical computing, creative coding, sensor technologies, wearable innovations, interactive environments, and the creative application of artificial intelligence. The course responds to the demands of the creative industry for versatile, imaginative, and technologically adept arts graduates and places a strong emphasis on professional skills. Through core modules and a year-long Professional Practice module, you will engage in real-world projects that challenge the practices and conventions of digital arts and creative media. You’ll create work for various audiences, platforms, and contexts, collaborate with communities and networks, and tackle real-world briefs and industry challenges.
