Electronic Art and Intermedia New Forms of Research and Creative Activity

About EAI

Electronic Art and Intermedia is a new, emerging area of study within the MSU Department of Art, Art History and Design that explores new forms of artistic output brought about by new technologies.  EAI builds on the historical philosophy of Intermedia, a philosophy that historically explored the intersection among art disciplines. Expanding on this framework that described the fusion of art genres (which are now ubiquitous) EAI applies this model within the academy more broadly to encourage new forms of research and creative activity. EAI encourages and facilitates collaborations with students and faculty across different disciplines, both within and outside of the arts.
