DXARTS

Established in 2001, DXARTS is a leading research center for Digital Art. DXARTS’ position within the University of Washington is unusual: it is not a subset of a school of art, engineering or computing, instead it exists as an autonomous academic program, thus it is able to define its own research and teaching agenda and fully explore the notion of artistic experimentation in the 21st century. Core DXARTS faculty are practicing generative artists and work alongside affiliate faculty from a variety of other departments, including Music, Neuroscience, Engineering, Law and Computer Science.

DXARTS has an internationally renowned and highly competitive PhD program, populated by emerging artists working with a broad range of materials, ideas and forms. The program emphasizes interdisciplinarity, with students taking classes across the university based upon their own research trajectories. DXARTS asserts that artistic knowledge is a particular type of intellectual and academic inquiry, and that it has value equivalent to that in other disciplines. DXARTS PhD students are expected to work on studio-based research projects, develop any technologies necessary to realize those projects and apply appropriate research methodologies to ensure their work makes a contribution to the field.

Located in the heart of the UW campus, DXARTS has state-of-the art facilities, including 3D sound and video labs, art+brain lab (for interdisciplinary research projects with neuroscience), as well as production studios, classrooms and a conference room. DXARTS also has an off-campus fabrication lab in a 5,000 sf warehouse located in the Ballard neighborhood. This facility includes digital fabrication tools (laser cutter, CNC router and milling machines), 3D printers, and a panoply of electronics and mechatronics tools, as well as production and exhibition space.
