Arts and Computational Technology

This is the only programme in the University of London in which students can include creative work and an arts-based context of their practice within the distinctive field of arts and creative technologies. The opportunities for artists and technologists working in artistic domains have long encountered difficulties in finding appropriate ways to 'measure' artistic practice in 'practice-based research' terms. The aim of the programme is to support students in their creation of new forms of artistic expression, and in their invention and application of new technologies that help make the art form possible. We therefore expect you to take a novel and personal path of exploration. This path will be determined by the shifts you make between artistic, technical, practical, conceptual and theoretical domains in relation to your own unique vision.
