Other Nature is The RISD Digital Media Department, Graduate Thesis Exhibition. This show represents the culmination of two years of Graduate study in the Rhode Island School of Design Digital Media Department.
The curriculum of this digital arts program explores cutting edge contemporary theory and practice. Expanding on a media art focus, the vision of the program is to provide a diverse environment for interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary exploration of digital media. The program includes a central curriculum and facilitates bridges to other existing departments at RISD, enabling individual inquiry, high level collaboration, and team-based media production. The program unfolds over a highly engaging two year course of study.
The goal of the program is to provide a resonant environment for cutting edge artistic research and practice, focusing on the creative, expressive potentials of digital media. The program has an emergent focus hybridizing, redefining and re-articulating the digital arts as an ongoing pursuit. It fosters exploratory work which seeks to exhibit a high degree of innovative visual, sonic, and/or textual expression, conceptual clarity, and technological skill. The continuum between physical space and digital space is also examined and explored.
The student draws from a number of potential study areas to define their own personal and/or team oriented practice. Current research areas defined for exploration in the the program include the following foci: interactive digital media; virtual environments; augmented reality; motion graphics; digital audio production; Internet oriented authorship; hybrid architectural/media environments; locative media; new forms of sensing and physical interface production; experimental media-related industrial design; ubiquitous computing as an expressive form; experimental games; wearable computing; new forms of literary media production; expressive digital tool building; installation art; digital media research; and the exploration of new forms of computer related expression. In each case the computer falls somewhere within the process of creative expression. Some individuals critique digital technology through a non-digital form. The final work may or may not appear to be digital in nature.
