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.
Aim of the programme
The aim of the Arts and Computational Technology programme at the Goldsmiths, University of London 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.
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.
You also present your work at the College level through interdisciplinary Graduate School seminars and at Spring Review week.
The University has established a forum with the Creativity and Cognition Studios at the University of Technology, Sydney for characterizing practice situated across arts and computational technology, which offers the potential for collaborative research.
You will have two supervisors (one from arts practice, and one from computer science), and can attend weekly PhD research seminars where students can present their findings to peers and staff; you are expected to give two presentations per year.
Assessment is by:
- written thesis (60-80,000 words)
- practical/technological component in an appropriate form
- 36 months
- 48 months
