Ph.D Applications | Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media (DXARTS)

  • Deadline:
    Feb. 8, 2008, midnight
  • Location:

The Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media (DXARTS) at the University of
Washington in Seattle is seeking strong applications for its new path-breaking
Ph.D. program. DXARTS is an autonomous degree granting Center in the College of
Arts and Sciences at the UW. The new Ph.D. program embraces an expansive range
of digital and experimental arts practice, and research across multiple
disciplines. Faculty and students at DXARTS work in established areas of
experimental arts such as Digital Video, Mechatronics, Computer Music and Sound
Art, 3D Animation, and Telematics, as well as pursue innovative areas of arts
research and creative context that have no media allegiance or historical
precedent. Creative work underway at DXARTS draws from all combinations of the
arts and sciences, and actively seeks the invention of completely new domains of
arts practice.

The deadline for receipt of complete applications for the Ph.D. program is
February 8th, for Fall 2008 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 at least one of the
following: experimental film making, computer music, computer programming, data
acquisition, 3-D modeling, cnc machining, rapid prototyping, bioengineering,
mechatronics, robotics and networked environments. International students should
apply as soon as possible due to the extra administrative time needed to process
these applications.
