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
