Digital Art

Examine technology, society + culture

Digital art at the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design focuses on artistic experimentation with immersive virtual environments, mobile computing, multimedia, video, and other electronic media. By merging art and technologies, students create new forms of expressions and ways of appreciating art for the 21st century.
