When founded 20 years ago, Digital Arts and Experimental Media (DXARTS) was a revolutionary Center of creative practice, research, and discovery at the frontier of new kinds of collaborations between artists, scientists, and engineers. Now a department with dedicated faculty, DXARTS continues to empower new generations of artists, cultivating an environment of intrepid inquiry with active partnerships across the UW campus and beyond. DXARTS challenges current trends, develops new approaches to artistic discovery, embraces diversity, and looks towards the future while celebrating traditions. DXARTS strives to explore the unknown.


A safe and inclusive space for artistic discovery, DXARTS embraces ambiguity and transparency. We have a commitment to supporting and promoting equity and diversity by welcoming artists from all cultural backgrounds and gender identities, and providing them with opportunities to discover and document new artistic knowledge.
