Description

Digital Art on the Web Workshop offers students the opportunity to expand their knowledge on online digital art practices through the ideation, development, conceptualisation and production of graphic, sound, audiovisual works and interactive and non-linear narratives on the Internet. It is a practical experimentation subject that connects technique learning with the emergence of languages. Practical experimentation is also related to different artistic frameworks, both contemporary and historical. 

This workshop is a part of Languages, Techniques and Advanced Technologies. Its aim is to offer students the possibility to further their understanding and perfecting of techniques and technologies they have already studied or to start learning new ones, while being able to choose which languages, techniques and media are relevant to their practice.
