Creative design and technology research program

Defining collaborative design solutions where emerging technologies weave physically and digitally across all facets of our everyday experiences with performance, knowledge, play, environment.

Computer technologies are incorporated into theater, dance, installation arts and music. But digital media are not mere updates of existing expressive tools - they also unlock new possibilities for expression on both real and virtual stages. Interactive access connects the physical to the digital world to create artistic experiences that can be participatory, collaborative and distributed. The Shared Performance group explores how new media art forms can help shape new technologies, and how new technologies can support new kinds of expressive works.
