Why choose this program?

The Master of Interactive Media is an advanced interdisciplinary exploration of 21st century creative practice, using new and emerging digital tools to push forward in art and design disciplines.

We consider interactivity to refer to the intersection of the viewer and the designed experience, and the ways in which they affect each other. This includes the relationships between the audience and the artwork; between data and user experience; between the landscape and the artist, and other modes of experiential design and artmaking. You will take an inclusive, multidisciplinary approach to creative problems, engaging with the theory, the development, and the implementation of interactive works and experiences. Working platforms include the Web and screen-based works, interactive installation, locative media, and networked objects. Overall the program explores the connections and frictions between digital media and physical experience, invoking new ideas, reflective practice, and collaborative enquiry.
