Master Study Interface Cultures at University of Art and Design in Linz
(4 semester)

The Interface Culture masters degree program, founded by media artists
Christa Sommerer and Laurent Mignonneau, is an artistic-scientific study to
educated media artists and media researchers in creative and innovative
interface and interaction design.

The study lasts two years and concentrates on project-oriented and
theory-based training in interactive digital media, combining art with
research, the development of projects and prototypes with scholarly

Subjects thought include: interactive art, interaction design, game design,
tangible interfaces, auditory interfaces, fashionable technologies, wearable
devices, intelligent ambiences, sensor technologies, telecommunication and
new experimental forms of human-machine, human-human and machine-machine

Artistic expressions include among others: interactive art, net art,
software art, robotic art, sound art, noise art, games and story telling,
mobile art as well as new hybrid areas like genetic art, bio art, space art
and nano art.

A specialty of the program is its strong collaboration with the Ars
Electronica in Linz, where students can show their projects on a yearly
basis and thus get in contact with the top experts of the media art and
design field. Previous projects of student works at Ars Electronica 2005
and 2006 can be found at: http://www.interface.ufg.ac.at/
