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.
