Digital interactive technologies have seen a rapid expansion and development. Working, creating and communicating with digital technologies has become the new common mindset for the changing, contemporary society. This masters program foregrounds practical work with digital tools and equipments, although every module in the program offers a theoretical perspective on a great variety of related subjects.
Master students can select from a broad range of specializations included in the performing, visual, and cinematic arts. Graduates of this masters program will have the knowledge and skills to express themselves as intermedia artists or will have better opportunities to enter the labor market of the information age in specific positions that require creative abilities.
Focusing on intermedia digital arts, new media documentaries, interactive design, sound design, management in media arts sector or creative industries, our faculty members are national and international renowned academics, artists and media specialists.
The master’s program addresses graduate students in visual arts, architecture, music, theater and film, as well as graduates from other fields who are interested in a theoretical and practical interdisciplinary approach to new digital technologies in visual, performing and cinematic arts. Each semester, under the coordination of national and international artists and specialists, students will conduct interactive artistic creation projects, collaborating with other graduate students from the performing arts and documentary filmmaking master programs. In order to graduate, next to the dissertation thesis, students will prepare a practical individual interdisciplinary project.
The thoretical courses and practical projects will help to understand the most important trends and developments in the field of interactive arts in the context of the new media platforms and will develop transdisciplinary artistic expression skills in professional contexts.
Students at DIA use RoboDK for simulation and offline programming of industrial robots and are integrating it into their artistic projects.
