Students enter a Field (e.g. Interactive h t s ; Film and Photography; Design; or Culture, Media and Technology ) that provides the context of their practical and theoretical work.

Students working within the Field of Interactive Arts have access to a diversity of media involving both solid, material elements and those that are time-based, digital,electronic or ephemeral. The scale of production can be very broad, extending from the intimate and personal to large public installations and performances or wide-ranging urban interventions, and from very simple structures and systems to highly complex, multimedia environments. While the Field sets out to support the student’s search for new forms of communication, construction and cultural interaction by exploring the creative potential of new technologies, it is also open to the investigation and interrogation of theory and practice in other cultures wherever such inquiry can be thought to contribute to the formulation of new artistic initiatives and strategies.
