Institutional Presentation Statement
The art and Technology Studies Program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago is one of the largest and most comprehensive of its kind in the United States. This interdisciplinary program includes a wide range of electronic, mechanical and computer-based areas of study including computer imaging, digital video, interactive media, computer animation, holography, digital sound and music, electronic media-based installation, telecommunication art, neon, kinetics, electronics, microprocessor and computer programming, and algorithmic composition. Recently, the department has reworked its curriculum with a goal of including more cross-disciplinary advanced courses, as well as a team-taught introductory sequence which provides abroad yet complete foundation for further study within the department. A general overview of the department as well as this new curriculum will be presented.
