<nettime-ann> Masterstudy Interface Culture in Linz Austria - now accepting applications

Master Study Interface Cultures at University of Art and Design in Linz Austria
(4 semester)

The Interface Culture masters degree program, founded by media artists Christa Sommerer and Laurent Mignonneau, is an artistic- scientific study to educated media artists and media researchers in creative and innovative interface and interaction design.

The study lasts two years and concentrates on project-oriented and theory-based training in interactive digital media, combining art with research, the development of projects and prototypes with scholarly publication.

Subjects thought include: interactive art, interaction design, game design, tangible interfaces, auditory interfaces, fashionable technologies, wearable devices, intelligent ambiences, sensor technologies, telecommunication and new experimental forms of human- machine, human-human and machine-machine interactions.

Artistic expressions include among others: interactive art, net art, software art, robotic art, sound art, noise art, games and story telling, mobile art as well as new hybrid areas like genetic art, bio art, space art and nano art.

A specialty of the program is its strong collaboration with the Ars Electronica in Linz, where students can show their projects on a yearly basis and thus get in contact with the top experts of the media art and design field. Previous projects of student works at Ars Electronica 2005 can be found at: Ars2005/index.php
