The assignment of artistic teaching and research/exploration in the Digital Arts Department
is the opening up of new fields for the arts and artistic practice through the use of information technology (hardware/software)
as a design resource and instrument, as well as the application, via algorithms, sensors, robots and new methods of image
creation, of the metaphors and design principles of time-based art (film, video, audio, interactive media art, ....) to “classic”
art forms such as sculpture and architecture, etc.
The development of new interfaces for the re-anchoring of digital
art within real space (augmented reality), e.g. big screen projections in public places, the medialisation of architecture,
sonification, acusmatic, VJ-ing, DJ-ing, motion tracking, visual computing and mechatronics, is supported through the communication
of basic know-how in the areas of media design and theory.Science Visualization Lab
