Digital and Interdisciplinary Art Practice MFA Program, City College of New York

The new Digital and Interdisciplinary Art Practice (DIAP) MFA Program at the City College of New York has a strong research-based component and examines the relationship between technology and tools in contemporary art practice, all within a unique shared environment.

The program's central focus is a utilization and critical engagement of digital media that can lead to research into areas as diverse as interactive sculpture, cyber gender, non-narrative motion graphics, online/offline privacy, performance, video or bio art and is supportive to different models of individual or collaborative art practices. The first cohort of DIAP students will graduate in the Spring of 2014.
Works by current DIAP students have been selected for the 2013 Asian Art Biennial, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taichung, Taiwan and the 11th Biennal of Media Arts at the National Museum of Arts in Chile.

DIAP is a research community where students work both individually and collaboratively on creative projects in digital or hybrid media art. Projects are conceptually and thematically driven and students will research tools and processes to fit the project, not the reverse. Wherever appropriate to the project, we encourage integration of traditional media or processes and methodologies from biology, computer science, math, psychology, dance, theater, sonic arts or other areas of potential interdisciplinary connection and exploration.
