Arts & Digital Cultures

 

The advent and ubiquity of digital technologies have set off a series of societal and cultural transformations. ARIAS aims to foster a better understanding of today’s digital world, particularly through research projects that serve as a meeting point for digital culture and artistic research. In this particular research cluster, ARIAS helps initiativs in which artists, scientists and scholars work together with data analysts, designers, online culture experts, architects and many other residents of the digital culture sphere to discover, analyse, reassess and speculate upon a vast catalogue of topics. The currently featured projects are vast in their scope of concepts, but notable examples include financial democratisation in the digital age, the nature and character of digital artworks, product design in the contemporary and post-capitalist times, the deep vernacular web and political subcultures, data processing and music, as well as science fiction. This research cluster on Arts & Digital Cultures brings together researchers from the five ARIAS institutions that are interested in the way arts interact with digital cultures, and how such research can operate at the intersection of technological and cultural production.

 

 

Within the ARIAS network there are a number of nodes of expertise in the research domain of digital cultures, including, but not limited to: Lectoraat Visual Methodologies (HvA), Institute of Network Cultures (HvA), The Digital Society School (HvA), Lectoraat Play & Civic Media (HvA), Digital Methods Initiative (UvA), Design department (Sandberg Institute), Interdisciplinair Digitaal Laboratorium (AHK)
