DXARTS Ph.D. Program, Applications Due Feb 3, 2006


Ph.D. Program in Digital Arts and Experimental Media

University of Washington

http://www.washington.edu/dxarts.

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 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 Ph.D. program is
February 3rd, for Fall 2006 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 instrests and strong skill sets in, computer programming,
data acquisition, 3-D modeling, cnc machining, rapid prototyping, mechatronics,
robotics and networked environments. International students should apply as soon
as possible due to the extra administrative time needed to process these
applications.
