  • Location:

University of Washington


The Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media (DXARTS) at the University of
Washington in Seattle is seeking strong applications for its path-breaking
PhD. program. DXARTS is an autonomous degree granting Center in the College of
Arts and Sciences at the UW. The new PhD. program embraces an expansive range
of digital and experimental arts practice and research across multiple
disciplines. Faculty and students in DXARTS work both in established areas of
experimental arts such as Digital Video, Physical Computing, Mechatronics,
Computer Music and Sound Art, Computer Animation, Telematics, etc., as well as
pursue innovative areas of arts research and creative context that have no media
allegiance or historical precedent. Creative work underway in DXARTS draws from
all combination of arts and sciences, and actively seeks the invention of
completely new domains of arts practice.

The deadline for receipt of complete applications for the PhD. program is
February 9th, for Fall 2009 admission. Though DXARTS highly encourages
applications from all interdisciplinary fields of experimental arts practice,
special attention will be focused this application cycle to artists whose
backgrounds include interests and strong skill sets in, 3-D modeling and
animation, spatial imaging, experimental video, computer music, computer
programming, CNC machining, rapid prototyping, robotics and networked
environments. International students should apply as soon as possible due
to the extra administrative time needed to process these applications.
